Looking For Wendy
Tomes' pseudo-search for her roots as a Korean adoptee takes her from her adoptive father who works in bio-engineering (genetically creating the world's juiciest tomato) to the adoptive relationship between Dave, the founder of Wendy's, and KFC's Colonel Sanders. This wry and ironic tape moves swiftly between pop-culture quotes and today's conventional wisdom on the relationship between genetics and identity. Consistently unbalancing the viewers' expectations with its comic visual juxtapositions, Looking for Wendy is finally a highly contemporary take on the complexities and contradictions of the search for the authentic self.
