Producer and designer of Jory.

Poster designed for screenings in theatres and other events. 

JORY is a story about a young Asian American teenager who struggles to find a home between his love for dance and his relentless, immigrant parents who want what's "best for him."

The film is inspired by the hardships of first-generation Asian Americans who grow up with "tiger parents" and are constantly told to meet extremely high expectations, whether that means sacrificing sleep, extracurricular activities, or mental health.

This short film will explore the perspectives of both second-generation Asian Americans and their immigrant parents and what it means to be a good parent or a good immigrant son/daughter or none of those.
