I’ve been filming Young Lee, a 58 year old Korean woman living in Los Angeles, since we met at my spa home while she was demo-ing high end Japanese beauty products as part of a pyramid scheme. After three years, I wrote a script based on everything I experienced and she plays herself in the new hyper stylized version of her life. It involves some bizarre business transactions, lots of gambling and a mysterious death in which she inherits an older American man's fortune. All of which really happened.
Young has consulted on creating her persona for this film, and has acting experience from her 20’s working on Korean television. Every part of this process has been collaborative and coincidental and I invite you to participate in the magic of its creation.
We have competed principal photography and are currently raising $3,000 to fund Post Production.
