82 minutes

A woman in New York and her abandoned daughter in Singapore, both struggling with existential questions, try to break their endless fall into depression towards a better life. Min, the estranged mother, suffers from writer’s block. She is haunted by an imaginary nemesis and unsettled by failed relationships with her father and ex-lover. In another corner of the world, her adult daughter Renée works on a new art project to cope with the sudden end of her marriage. Over the course of four days, their nightmares, obsessions, and illusions unravel an inter-connectedness between mother and child in a daily struggle to survive.

Blurring the line between documentary and fiction, A Love Unknown (2020) directed by John Clang interweaves personal stories and traumas with larger questions on the meaning of life and existence.
