After a baseball game, an Asian-American boy navigates microaggression with his friends through seemingly innocent jokes and games.
In Si, director Thomas Percy Kim captures something so incredibly difficult to express, with acute precision and beauty: the feeling of being an outsider. No heavy-handed politics in this film. Just a series of subtle, authentic moments in the life of Si, an Asian American high school kid in an all-White town. Kim is a masterful director, with a deep understanding of both the story and the language of cinema. I can’t recommend this short enough. — Kath T (Programmer)

Thomas was awarded the Harry Winston Brilliant Futures award that year. Currently, at 19 years-old, Thomas premiered, “Si”, starring Ki Hong Lee (MAZE RUNNER, UNBREAKABLE KIMMY SCHMIDT), and is in development for a feature while attending USC for Film Production.
