51 Birch Street

NOW ON DVD

Read the Reviews

"51 Birch Street is a beautiful, resonant piece of work about how little we know about our parents' lives, about marriage and fidelity, loss and reconciliation. I've often felt that the personal documentary has overstayed its welcome, but Birch Street reaffirms my faith in the form."

– Anthony Kaufman, INDIEWIRE

Yoko Knox (age 41)

The first impression after watching the film is ‘Thank God women have more choices now!’. I grew up in Asia, but the circumstance was similar back in my parent’s generation. It was automatic to find someone by mid 20’s, get married and have children. People normally didn’t even question about marriage, how it works, what are the expectations, or even if you want to get married or not. Divorce was out of the question.

I’m currently single, have been divorced for 2 years and I’m the happiest ever. My marriage was a constant struggle and we tried the best we could and didn’t work out. I’d rather be alone than being in a miserable relationship. It took me 2 years to recover, but I learned a lot from marriage/divorce, there is no regret.

I feel bad about the mother, but I’m happy to see his father spends the rest of his life happier, with or without a partner.
