Director Biography

Bruce Chiu is a director and screenwriter, born in Taipei and based in Los Angeles. He worked in the advertising industry for many years in Taipei before going to the U.S. to study filmmaking at the School of Cinematic Arts, University of Southern California. He specializes in making dramas on family and social issues. In his time in the U.S. he made many short films and was selected for several international film festivals including Raindance Film Festival, Toronto Reel Asian Film Festival, Out on Film Atlanta’s LGBTQ Film Festival, Taiwan International Queer Film Festival, etc.

Director’s Statement

Even if a queer person acknowledges their identity, truly revealing oneself before their loved ones is often still a gap that cannot be bridged. This film explores this second process of acceptance. Through the interpretation of American-Burmese transgender actor Chrissy, the film shows queer people’s inner struggles but also presents their kind, brave, and strong side, and even more importantly, tells everyone, no matter who you are, that you deserve to be loved.
