by two after twenty


This is the first time I’m writing about the film I wrote and directed a few months ago; a collection of stills from the film are above. “Faraway” is about a girl who has trouble communicating with her Grandmother. It was based on my own experiences, premiered at York Finish Line and was selected for York’s Cinesiege 2011. It was also an official selection for the Montreal World Film Festival. Tomorrow, Faraway will be playing as a selection of the Toronto Reel Asian International Film Festival, at 1:00 PM in the downtown Toronto NFB Cinema.

Faraway was a project of love and reflection. I couldn’t have done it without an insanely fabulous crew, and a wonderful cast. I’m also very glad to have dedicated it to my parents.
