SUPPORT PACIFIC ISLANDER FILMMAKERS AT THE L.A. ASIAN FILM FESTIVAL
The Los Angeles Asian and Pacific Islander Film Festival programs only a handful of the finest features and shorts from made by and about the Pacific Islands. One film with a surprising Pacific connection is the full length narrative Two Shadows, a Cambodian-American story produced by a Christen Hepuakoa Marquez, a Native Hawaiian who lives and works in Los Angeles.
Two Shadows tells the story of Savanna (Sophea Pel) is a Cambodian-American hipster wannabe whose dreary life is suddenly jolted by a letter from Cambodia claiming that her long lost brother and sister are still alive. Sovanna braves a solo journey from California to Cambodia in search of her two siblings.
