A Life Like This

A young New Zealander doesn’t know much about his father even though they have lived together for almost twenty-five years. Isaiah decides to make a film about his dad, a survivor of the Khmer Rouge regime in the hope that it will bring them together. Using animation the two work together to explore Huat’s untold refugee story.
