Here’s your chance to support women of the API community in the Entertainment Industry. Jennifer Phang (Sundance Fest and Lab Alumna director-writer), Jacqueline Kim (actor, co-writer, producer) and Theresa Navarro (producer) are joining forces for the adaptation of of ADVANTAGEOUS – an award-winning short film made for the ITVS FUTURESTATES online series. The short stars numerous API actors including Jacqueline Kim (CHARLOTTE SOMETIMES), 13-year-old Korean-American actress Samantha Kim, and Obie Award-winning actor James Urbaniak (THE VENTURE BROS, AMERICAN SPLENDOR)
“A sci-fi film set in a not-too-distant future, ADVANTAGEOUS is about a mother who must decide whether to undergo an extreme procedure in order to compete in an extremely difficult job market and provide a better education and future for her daughter. It deals with themes of feminism, family, education, and sacrifice.”
The short played at a number film festivals including Tribeca, CAAMFest and the San Diego Asian Film Festival, and won the Golden Reel Award at LA Asian Pacific Film Festival. After gaining much praise, it was developed into a feature-length script. This is where you come in.
The Kickstarter Crowdfunding Campaign aims to raise $30,000 to fund turning this short into a feature film. The campaign deadline is this Friday July 12th. If you’d like to see Advantageous make it to the big screen, click here  to make a contribution!
