Writer and director J.P. Chan's "A Picture of You" starts with a familiar dynamic of sibling squabbles and family tension, but takes viewers on a journey to some unexpected outcomes.
The film stars Jo Mei (forthcoming "Adult World"), Andy Pang ("The Good Wife" and "Elementary"), Teyonah Parris ("Dear White People" and AMC TV series "Mad Men") and Jodi Long (TBS TV series "Sullivan & Son").
Kyle and Jen, estranged siblings, travel from New York City to rural Pennsylvania to pack up the home of their recently deceased mother. While there, they inadvertently make a shocking discovery that turns their world upside-down.
Described as a serious movie about life that collides into a funny movie about death, "A Picture of You" is a story about loss, family, secrets, making up, and moving on.
Chan's script earned him the best screenplay award at the Los Angeles Asian Pacific Film Festival.
A self-taught filmmaker and playwright, Chan grew up in New York City. His short films have screened at film festivals including Slamdance, SXSW, Tribeca, and Comic-Con.
