Bitter Melon

201895 minutes

From the producers of SORRY TO BOTHER YOU and COLMA: THE MUSICAL, BITTER MELON is the story of a Filipino-American family who reunites for a Christmas party at the family home in San Francisco only to find out that Troy Patrick Epino, the second oldest child, has been ruling the house with fear—intimidating everyone who lives there—including his mother, and even physically abusing his wife. What starts as a fun holiday reunion turns into a darkly humorous crime scene as Declan Jon Norman Schneider, the youngest son, leads the family as they conspire on how to best murder the violent and abusive Troy. Hailed as "an indie masterpiece" by Tim Sika of the San Francisco Film Critics Circle and "Mendoza's best directorial feature to date" by Variety's Dennis Harvey, BITTER MELON reunites director H.P. Mendoza with L.A. Renigen Colma: The Musical, Fruit Fly and Anna Ishida I Am a Ghost.
