Director: Andrew Ahn
Runtime: 93 minutes
JOHN CASSAVETES AWARD Film Independent Spirit Awards (2017)
Andrew Ahn’s (Fire Island) debut feature entwines two narrative tropes—sexual awakenings and family obligations—with the steamy milieu of Korean spas in Los Angeles. As David’s (Joe Seo) furtive glances and repressed longing slowly resolve into a halting intimacy, Spa Night stands out by also training our gaze on the distinct struggles of immigrant families with small businesses just scraping by.
This film is featured in the strand A Bold Gaze, part of the Constellating Histories: Encountering Asian American Diasporas Onscreen programme. For the full programme lineup please click here.
