Storyline

"East of Hollywood" is a short film that deals with the trials and tribulations of the average Asian American actor. Shot as a documentary, this comedy exaggerates the, sometimes degrading, nature of the casting process. Filled with cultural references, memorable characters, and a poignant story, this film raises important questions about Asian representation in the media, while still making audiences laugh out loud. Written by Michael Tow

Quotes
