Every year, HBO sponsors a contest for Asian American short films and showcases the winners. 2020’s winners were recently made available for viewing on HBO Max after honoring them as part of the Virtual Los Angeles Asian Pacific Film Festival. The three winners include Fine China, Si, and Lonely Blue Night, and you can see the highlights of each in the trailers above. You might recognize Ki Hong Lee from the Maze Runner movies as he appears in Si. I have only watched Tiffany So’s Fine China so far and really enjoyed it. The picture featured below captures a scene from this short.
You need access to HBO Max to see these. I am looking forward to watching the other two shorts, and will probably post reviews of all three in the coming weeks.
