*Plus Short: THE LEAF
The COVID-19 pandemic changes and destroys everything in daily life, and people would not be able to enjoy movies with friends in the theatre for a long while. It applies directly to the arts and film community that filmmakers and art creators would not be able to take any jobs for months or years. Will is a member of the filmmaking community in the San Francisco Bay Area, who is also experiencing the dilemma. As an immigrant from China, he struggles financially in the current US as a filmmaker, but at the same time, he is uncertain about whether he could still be himself if he moves back to China since he is also facing the uprising of racism against immigrants and Asians in the US. THE LEAF is a personal poetic hybrid documentary film about a filmmaker’s dilemma as both a filmmaker and a gay immigrant during this pandemic.
Director/Writer/Producer/Editor: William Jian Zang. USA. In English & Mandarin Chinese with English subtitles 2021. 4 mins
