About

From the crews and director of Purple Hearts: A Telegram For June, now in pre production of our next coming project, Trickle Down.  This is our 2nd Inspired By True Event short film and our first on kickstarter!

Trickle Down (T.D). Inspired From A True Story.

The Plot: This is an adaptation of a true story of an Asian woman found herself fighting for her life as three armed burglars stormed her home at 4am in the morning. She exercised her right to defend her livelihood and her family.

Director Vision and Statement: In the last five year or more, racial discrimination that all minorities have faced, media continue airing anti-immigration and xenophobic rhetoric from TV show, social media, and films, it effect is beginning to trickling down to all of us. Asian American battled everyday racism and attack, from violence hate crime, home robbery crime, equal educational opportunities…etc. This is not just another true crime story, this is the continue and a new beginning of everyday challenge to all of us.

Director Inspiration Of This Film: I do not want to make another movie to keep reminding how Asian American being bully and their struggle in this country, because there are already plenty out there. Instead, my vision and inspiration is to share many great beautiful and heroic stories of Asian American. Stories that are uplifting, inspiring, bravery, heroic, and romantic. Although we all fighting for our freedom everyday, but I see the future is full of beautiful dreams and opportunities ahead for all of us.

Check out our 1st based on true event short film project Purple Hearts for Justin Lin Short Film Contest Interpretation 2.0 submission.
