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..
