HOW TO STOP BEING CHINESE, 4min., USA, Experimental
Directed by Isaac Kau
How To Stop Being Chinese is an exploration of the importance of recognizing one’s own cultural heritage. In the film, a shadowy book teaches three tragic heroines about the blood ties that bind them to over 4,000 years of ancestral heritage. Each step of the book’s instructions dares its readers to break a traditional superstition in order to escape their Chinese culture—but the unforeseen consequences are deadly.
