A story about a Punjab immigrant’s one day of life in the mist of pandemic, presidential election, and George Floyd protest.

That’s the proposal of award-winning LA-based Chinese writer and film director Haohao Yan in “11.02.2020.MPLS.MN“, a remarkable 18-minute short film that has been confirmed for the lineup of the next Indie Short Fest live screening at Raleigh Studios Hollywood, on July 1st, 6pm.

A powerful portrait of the insecurities and sense of lost of immigrants in the midst of the new reality of 2020 in US.

Haohao Yan

“The majority of my team are immigrants in the US. We’ve all been lost and unsure of our position in this society, especially during this sensitive time. And that’s why we have to make this film, to show the audience an outsider’s experience in this absurd new reality of America and a sense of helplessness I believe is universal among us all”, explains Haohao Yan.

The director will participate in a Q&A after the screening of the film.

“11.02.2020.MPLS.MN” joins WWII drama short “Trust” and award-winning drama on Wuhan’s coronavirus lockdown “Mother in the Mist” in this special Q&A and screening which has 3 more films TBA.

Tickets on sale.
