SELF-ishClassy Little Bitch Productions
SELF-ish follows Esther, a 35-year-old Korean-Canadian woman, examining herself in the face of a recent tragedy. Esther wakes up to the “familiar tremor of existential angst ripple over [her] body like a pee shiver” and takes us into her family dynamics, her crappy workplace and her present-day angst.
“Kuan Foo’s script resonates especially for Asian-Canadian audience members. When Esther’s tears finally come, Bang has no trouble digging deep. NNNN”
