Q&A after the screening of our short film “Distance” （距離）. *
Having our film at CAAMfest was a great and surreal experience for me. I was an intern at the Center for Asian American Media (CAAM) back in 2010-2011. To come back years later to screen a film here is nothing short of awesome.
I learned that the CAAM programmers didn’t know I was one of the filmmakers until after it was selected. I’m not opposed to using connections, but to know that the film was selected on merit was especially fulfilling.
Thanks again to all that came. Another shout out to Jessie Chui (Songs For Cinema) for allowing us to use his beautiful song “Asymmetries of Loss” for the film score.
*Part of the ONE ON ONE shorts program at CAAMfest 2013. Filmed on March 21st 2013. Directors James Y. Shih, Nick Louie and actor Iris Hsu in attendance. Moderated by Mordecai Stayton. Special thanks to Daniel Tong for filming the Q&A.
