short narrative  2015



4th grade is all about fitting in. For ten-year-old Daniel that means owning the latest in Hello Kitty fashion, liking the cutest boy in class, and convincing yourself you’re Asian when everyone else thinks you're white. Davis Desmond and Sari Lennick (The Coen Brother's A Serious Man, and Woody Allen's Cafe Society) star in this short comedy that proves identity is all in the eye of the beholder.

D. Asian screened in over 35 film festivals across the globe from Pakistan to Israel including: Palm Springs Short Fest, Iris Prize (shortlisted 30k prize), Rhode Island Film Festival (Director's Choice), DC Independent Film Festival (Best Short), amongst others. In 2017 Sarah was awarded the AT&T Underrepresented Filmmaker Award, presented by Patty Jenkins.
