Feature Film
Seagrass
Directed by: Meredith Hama-Brown

Desperate to find a deeper connection in her marriage after the recent death of her mother, Judith (Japanese Canadian) brings her family to a self-development retreat on a remote island. But when they befriend another interracial couple who seem to have the perfect marriage, Judith begins to recognize how irreparably fractured her relationship is. Meanwhile, their two daughters are plunged into a destabilizing world under the constant stress of their parents’ crumbling relationship. In the end, the family must collectively face their most unnerving insecurities before they become permanently
broken.
