Balsa Wood

Directed by Dominique Lecchi
Written by Dominique Lecchi
Starring:  Jessica Henwick, Pik Sen Lim, Andrew Leung, Lourdes Faberes, Leighanne Esperanzate


Sunday lunch with the Filipino family proves taxing when you feel more out of water than the mounted sea bass in the lounge.  A light-hearted slice of life about two mixed race siblings visiting their extended Filipino family for lunch. Balsa Wood is an intense bubble of family functions and dysfunctions, all with a south east Asian fluorescence.
