Adele Lim’s Asian-American Comedy JFC Returns to Vancouver for Additional Photography

Adele Lim’s big raunchy movie JFC, about four Asian-American women searching for one of their birth mothers in all the wrong places, is back in Vancouver for three days of additional photography.

We’re fully leaning into a side of Asian-ness the world doesn’t usually get to see… the messy, R-rated, thirsty AF side. — Director Adele Lim.

Remember its R-rated makeover of the Fletcher Park playground in Maple Ridge?

The comedy follows four Asian-American women as they travel through Asia in search of one of their birth mothers. Along the way, their experience will become one of bonding, friendship, belonging and no-holds-barred debauchery that reveals the universal truth of what it means to know and love who you are..

LAST DAY OF PRINCIPAL PHOTOGRAPHY. On Day 1 I put my visual deck up on the wall and crossed out each set piece when we were done. Still can’t believe my 3rd world Azn ass got to direct a studio movie. It’s been a wild 34 days of shooting with a KILLER crew and a cast NO ONE IS READY FOR. Can’t wait to share on the other side.
