Apple’s 2021 Chinese New Year Short: Nian

Every year, Apple releases a short film for Chinese New Year that is shot on an iPhone.  I really liked 2020’s Daughter, and this is year’s short called Nian is less serious but quite charming.  Nian is directed by Lulu Wang, best known for directing The Farewell.  Apple usually includes a “making of” video regarding their New Year short, and this year is no exception.  If you choose to watch Nian, I suggest you stay for the credits, which has an amusing scene on the side.
