Bitter Sweet: Filmmaker Explores How Food Shapes Our Identity | Elite Daily

We often sacrifice our sanity in pursuit of some impossible ideal. In her short film Bitter Sweet, filmmaker Amy B Tiong, a Gates Millennium scholar and graduate of NYU Tisch School of the Arts, explores how body insecurities shaped her relationship with food. Amy, in her own words: “My parents moved to America, opened a Chinese fast-food restaurant, and had me. They grew up poor, so being able to provide for me and my sisters in whatever way was a blessing. This included the food on our table. Over the years, my relationship with food has moved from innocent to toxic to healing. This is part of that story.” Amy is currently obtaining her masters degree in nutrition and working toward her Certified Nutrition Specialist certification. She hopes that this film opens conversations, and she plans to continue making work that uplifts the lives of others.
