CYI Summer Shorts
Join us for a virtual screening of two short films by Asian American filmmakers: Golden Boy and Koreatown Ghost Story, followed by discussion and Q&A with the filmmakers.
Sunday, June 27th from 7- 9PM EST
Chen, a 51-year old computer science engineer in the Bay Area, is scrambling around the house, preparing for his wife’s discharge from the hospital. In the midst of the frenzy, he yells at his daughter for filming at the wrong time. Director Kitty Hu documents her father’s journey throughout this entire experience – how he has to balance family and work and how he adapts to being a caregiver.
Everything feels overwhelming, but this film explores how as Kitty’s father says, “We are together.”
KOREATOWN GHOST STORY
In this supernatural horror tale based on a Korean ritual starring Margaret Cho and Lyrica Okano, a woman entertains a macabre offer that would let her pursue her dreams, for better or for much much worse.
