Mothers — with all their earnest, loving intentions — can often be entertaining, and their advice can be an interesting mix of serious, silly, insightful and mind-boggling (sometimes all rolled up into one zinger you can’t wait to share with your friends). In honor of Mother’s Day, we’ve asked fellow Asian American writers and artists to share the funniest advice they’ve ever gotten from their mothers.
As a community partner with the Los Angeles Asian Pacific Film Festival, we’re proud to be co-presenting Michael Kang’s Knots. As a special promotion, we’re giving away two tickets to the screening on Sunday, May 13th at 4pm! To enter, leave a comment by FRIDAY MAY 11 AT NOON PST. Link to the giveaway on Twitter for an extra entry (leave another comment with your Twitter status!). Two entries max per person.
