The director, Jen Frisch-Wang, is a queer, Asian American filmmaker currently based in Seattle, Washington. She is passionate about social equity and works with Reel Grrls Productions to empower female and gender-nonconforming youth from diverse backgrounds through media production. Jen has an affinity for surrealism and comedy, which are defining traits of her style. Her debut film, Red Chimera, has toured the world at prestigious festivals in Chicago, New Delhi, Toronto, Bangladesh, and more. She is moving to Berlin, Germany in the fall to continue her professional career and earn her BFA in Film Production.
Jen was inspired to make smalllove from experiences and curiosities that she believes are universal to young adults and teens, from a second generation, feminine perspective. She is keen on telling her story with elegance, humor, and youth to a worldwide audience to bring community and closure to those with similar experiences.
Synopsis: Back home for winter break, Helen rediscovers relationships from her past in a journey to define what love is as an asian american in western youth culture.
Shoot dates are tentatively July 28th - 30th. This may be extended into the first week of August if needed.
