Foreign Lovers is a passion project inspired by true events. An LGBT romantic dramedy where two strangers from different parts of the world serendipitously collide and share an organic connection. Sparks ensue and inspire changes within. Along the way we meet a palette of wild characters that you only encounter in New York. A colorful dream like meditation on love and life in the digital world.
I was coming off a career enhancing experience and then was suddenly unemployed, un-inspired, and spending most of my time in solitude. This is for anyone who has ever felt numb and allowed themselves the freedom (if even for a moment) of letting someone in.
We have an extremely talented multi-cultural cast and creative crew. Our goal is to tell an authentic and diverse story without the cliches or the over use of sex that is often found in gay content. It is important now more than ever to show the world positive depictions of the gay community and showcase actors of all ethnicities. Donald Trump be damned. Our cinematographer Eunah-Lee is the perfect person to capture the intimate moments between these characters in this chaotically beautiful city. Original score and music led by Joe Wood. This film will be full of style, color, and sound.
