Revealing what your family’s really like behind the scenes can be a giant leap of faith that few have the courage—and family support—to take.

In her sensitive short The Mess We’re In, emerging Vancouver writer/director JAMIE LAM draws upon personal experience growing up in the loving home—of a hoarder!

While the film never sugar coats the stress this caused Jamie growing up, it’s a triumph of love over tidying up. It was a hit in this year’s Short Circuit Pacific Rim Film Festival and won Best Cinematography, Best Direction and Best Film at the 2022 Mighty Asian Moviemaking Marathon.

If you’ve ever considered making your family the subject of a film, this revealing interview might just give you the push you need to take the plunge.
