In The Shadows
2018 20 minutes
A short film about Chinese Immigrants living in the shadows of society
After living in the shadows for years, two hard-working illegal Chinese immigrants decide to use their day off to have fun for the first time in their American lives. The journey begins when the older man, Zhang, forces the younger and more cautious Lin to leave their run down apartment and enjoy themselves for a day. While Lin initially thinks Zhang is asking for too much and causing nothing but trouble, he comes to understand Zhang better through the experience. By the end, Lin becomes the risk-taker and continues the journey to a free life. This story is very important to the team, as they have faced many of the challenges that Lin and Zhang overcome during the course of the film.
