Secrets, intrigue and double lives were the most popular short films on Viddsee in 2015.
What’s more awkward than coming out of your closet? Helping your family come out of the closet is a close one next after that, as evident in the drama ‘My Day With The In Laws’ by Taiwanese filmmaker Jui Ying Chiu.
A young gay son has brought his boyfriend home for the night, and his parents are finally forced to confront the fact that he won’t likely be interested in women.
The drama begins on the eve of the visit, on a rainy night. It winds up and cascades into a proper storm in a tea cup when Zhi-jie pulls a quick one on his parents.
He runs away, leaving the helpless boyfriend in their company for the day.
They discovered their own way towards acceptance in small, baby steps.
‘My Day With In Laws’ was in the official selection for InDPanda International Film Festival, Youth Way-Light Film Festival and the Home Film Festival by Haus Image.
