A Taste of Home
Dir. David Yun
In A Taste of Home filmmaker David Yun attempts to reconcile the feelings of alienation he experienced while growing up in a suburban Detroit town with the emotions felt after returning home to care for his terminally ill mother. Combining landscape cinematography with a highly personal voiceover, A Taste of Home documents the filmmaker’s changing relationship with his hometown under these new sets of circumstances while relating to larger questions of identity and our always changing relationships to our familial and communal histories.

What’s a girl to do when a rare hair-loss condition leaves her with an obsession for zany wigs and make-up? Become a drag queen, of course! Prada Hamburg, child of the famous shoe designer, may not have any hair, but she does have a fabulous wig collection. Having always been an outsider, Prada finally finds her niche when she lands a job at a kooky drag bar full of colorful characters – a world of sequins, feathers and false eyelashes – and assumes the new identity of Prada Handbag.
