Synopsis
Grace Jung and Cat Min are childhood friends and working artists. Cat is a published children’s book author, animator, wife and mother to twin toddlers, and Grace is a touring stand-up comedian, author, filmmaker and academic. In 2009, they filmed themselves in the summer of 2009 at age 22 shortly after graduating college. 11 years later, they rediscover this footage at age 33 and observe how their past selves relate, conflict, and coincide with their present being. 22 to 33 is an intimate feature documentary that explores themes such as art, spirituality and dreams through personal conversations about immigrant upbringing, mental health, family dysfunction, career, racism, womanhood, as well as the relief and purpose one finds through creative expression. The film is segmented into thematic chapters such as “Expression,” “Fear,” “Forgiveness,” “Death,” “Politics,” “The Artist’s Home,” and more as these two very different women process their past and seek grace in the present day by rendering their memories and visions into creative productivity. 22 to 33 is a variety documentary that experiments with time, narrative, and a diversity of visual media including stop-motion animation, claymation, paint, photographs, nature, and live comedy to weave together two very distinct yet intertwined artists’ lives from women who dream big and live up to it fearlessly to make their younger selves proud.
