Submissions for Still Voices 21 Now Open
Submissions for the Still Voices Short Film Festival 2021 are now open!
“Out of Place” is a dual narrative film that explores both the disconnection and the connection between two immigrant lives in the United States. A young aspiring Chinese pianist and a Mexican house painter, unaware of them being neighbors, go through a day of disillusionment in symphony. Their stories, in its core, are to examine a universal longing to belong and the unfortunate reality of feeling still, out of place.
Peier "Tracy" Shen is a Chinese director based in Los Angeles. She graduated with honors from Columbia University, with BAs in both English and Film & Media Studies. She recently obtained her MFA in Directing from the AFI Conservatory. She served as a marketing representative for Universal Pictures for the past three years, and interned at FF2 Media as a critic for two years. She has written, directed and produced several short films and stage plays. Growing up in China while receiving a Western education, she’s drawn to the struggle of straddling two cultures. Her characters thereby are always set to explore their sense of identities in order to discover their way home.
