Chicken and Noodles: A Portrait of My Father is a single channel documentary about Larissa Yeung’s father, Yik-Cheung Yeung. The film focuses on his chicken and farming hobby, his job at a chicken processing facility, and a noodle factory. What was once a necessity for living is now a leisurely hobby: the fruits of his labour have grown into independence and financial freedom. As an ode to family and an intimate look into the immigrant experience from an individual’s perspective, this film is an effort to document personal history and better understand diasporic identity as it exists within generations.
