In FIRST PERSON PLURAL, we see Liem untangling her roots with a combination of zeal and anguish that dramatizes how desperately we all need to connect with our past to make sense of our lives and ourselves. Boston Globe

FIRST PERSON PLURAL traverses a difficult and intimate terrain. Borshay’s struggle to confront the secrets of her childhood and reconcile the demands of two families, two cultures and two nations reveals a poignant story about loss and finding a new way home.San Francisco International Asian American Film Festival
