Deepika Shrestha Ross: Momo America

Momo America is a documentary short film that seeks to expand the Asian American narrative by providing an insider’s view into the largely invisible Nepali American immigrant experience. The narrator’s personal story, built of memories, family photographs, and home video, provides the framework through which are woven present-day vignettes of a growing and increasingly diverse Nepali American population, finding community and passing on cultural knowledge - all around the kitchen table, while exchanging stories and preparing one of their favorite foods, momos.
