RITA, a young Chinese American woman, is haunted by her father's ghost in the days leading up to her wedding.
RITA (29) is about to commit a cultural taboo – marrying outside of her ethnicity. Rita is Chinese. And her fiancée BEN (32) is White. In a typical domestic drama, this obstacle would take the form of disapproving parents. But in Rita’s particular situation, her mother does not object and her father is already dead. In theory, she can marry whomever she wishes. Or can she?
GREEN PLASTIC SANDALS is a film about identity, and the horror that you feel when one part of yourself conflicts with another. Rita is a woman who is torn between the traditions of her family and her own individual desires. The project is inspired by Japanese horror classics like The Grudge, The Ring, and Dark Water, as well as Polanski’s Repulsion, a psychological thriller about a woman whose unconscious fears are manifested in the world around her.
The SyFy Television Network has awarded us $10,000 to make the film.
Here is some recent press on the project:
These funds will cover a substantial part of the budget. But I need your help with the rest. Your donation will help us with production design, special effects, make-up, stunts and sound - all elements essential to making a great horror film.
Without your support, all of this would not be possible. And from the bottom of my heart, I thank you!
Director, GREEN PLASTIC SANDALS
