A tender and sweeping story about what roots us, Minari follows a Korean-American family that moves to a tiny Arkansas farm in search of their own American Dream. The family home changes completely with the arrival of their foul-mouthed but incredibly loving grandmother. Amidst the instability and challenges of this new life in the rugged Ozarks, Minari shows the undeniable resilience of family and what really makes a home.

Nominated for six Oscars, Minari is the must-see film of the year.

Why we love it: ‘As the son of an Asian immigrant, I had a feeling that this film would infiltrate my heart and it is safe to say that it is now living there rent free. Minari is a film that puts Asian faces in the spotlight but also focuses on people just trying to do their best for the ones they love and fighting to find somewhere they can call home. This film is beautiful, melancholic but ultimately heart-warming, and is sure to reverberate with anyone who has ever yearned for a sense of belonging.’ - Chris Kumar, GFF Programme Coordinator
