“Jaime Lo, small and shy” by Lillian Chan (NFB)


In this animated short, Jaime Lo’s father is sent to Hong Kong
for a year-long work assignment. A shy Chinese-Canadian girl,
Jaime Lo must use her creativity to cope with his absence. This
story offers us a lighthearted glimpse into a common dilemma
that many immigrant families face, where one parent must work
overseas in order to provide for the rest of the family back
home.
