Nǎi Nai & Wài Pó

A heartwarming tribute to two Chinese immigrant grandmothers who find joy and companionship in their old age.


Why watch this film?

Nominated for the 2024 Oscar for Best Documentary Short Film, Nai Nai & Wài Pó couldn't be more personal: director Sean Wang captures the daily life of his two grandmothers, Chinese immigrants in the United States, who care for and accompany each other in old age. There's not much more to say: it's one of those films that celebrates the joy of life and the beauty in everyday things despite old age, not neglecting the other side of the coin, the sadness that accompanies the proximity of death. Love, fear, and melancholy in a powerful short film of just over 15 minutes. Don't forget the tissues.
