The lottery

THE LOTTERY IS A SHORT NARRATIVE FILM CONSISTING OF THREE segments delineating the misconceptions that many new immigrants from Taiwan hold about living in the U.S. The subject matter of these three segments included in this film is respectively: health care for immigrants from Taiwan, ABC (American-born Chinese) Singers' Concerts in the U.S., and celebrities in Hollywood. I attempted to express serious subject matter with a lighter, humorous attitude in my thesis project. The aesthetic approach employed in this film is to incorporate found footage from DVD movies and overdub with original dialogue to convey a completely innovative sense of meaning.
