SHORT NARRATIVE 2015
WRITER / DIRECTOR / PRODUCER / EDITOR
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 (A Serious Man) star in this short comedy that proves identity is not always 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 for D.Asian.
