Actress Wanted at LAAPFF

Downtown Independent
251 S Main Street
Los Angeles, CA 90012

Laos Angeles is a proud partner of the 35th Annual Los Angeles Asian Pacific Film Festival, taking place on May 2 - 10, 2019. More on the festival here.

Actress Wanted
Shot in Orange County’s Little Saigon and around neighborhoods in Garden Grove and Westminster, the quotidian lives of local Vietnamese and familiar haunts take on a sinister veneer through Minh’s lens. Discouraged by both lack of and failed auditions, Mai and her roommate, Long (Isabelle Du) commiserate in their sun-drenched apartment. Desperate to book a job, Mai answers a mysterious newspaper advertisement that seemed tailored for her, a Vietnamese-American actress. One can interject critical commentary here about the continuing lack of roles, both advertised and let alone created, for Asian Pacific American actors. Ignoring her own skepticism, she dispatches herself to the remote, isolated residence of her employer Vu, where nothing is what it seems.
