"7th Night is an experimental short film that tells the story of a young Chinese woman's encounter with her dead grandfather's spirit on the 7th Night after his death. As a queer woman, and a granddaughter, she fights to break free from her conventional Asian household and at the same time, stumbles on her self-exploration journey, seeking acceptance from her family and herself. This film tries to uncover the patriarchal powers over Asian women that have long been excused under the cultural name of "filial piety" and to pass on the message: it is okay to love yourself, first and most." -- Abstract
