Digital Release: Si

"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)
