Thrilled to share Wong Ping’s selection in the upcoming screening ‘Midnight Shorts’ as part of SXSW’s Short Film Program presenting Ping’s single channel animation, ‘Who’s the Daddy’ (2017).
‘Who’s the Daddy’ combines the crass and the colourful to mount a discourse around repressed sexuality, personal sentiments, and political limitations. Simultaneously humorous and dark in its execution, Ping’s animation depicts a personal narrative of sexuality, birth, and fatherhood. ‘Who’s the Daddy’ functions as a personal window into the pressure and sexual repression of the male identity, questioning the impact of these social issues on a generation dependent and immersed in technology.
