Yesterday I got to see #GookTheFilm and let me say that @justinchon did that both in front of and behind the camera! Such a beautifully shot film with great acting (shout out to young Simone Baker!) and a story angle I've never seen, read or heard before. This movie opens in L.A. on Friday and nationwide on the 25th. This one is a #MustSee !

Michael with the POWER stance! We have some exciting projects we can't wait to share with you.

Meet HESTIA, the female lead to my new short film "Heartseeker"! Hestia is poised and calculating, priding herself on her precision and charm. She is an introvert at heart, savoring her solitude and independence. However, despite this and a jaded view on "love", she sometimes finds herself on Heartseeker, a swipe-based dating app, looking for someone who can satisfy her peculiar tastes.

Hestia will be played by GRACE YOO (@graceyloufreebush)

Meet HAROLD the male lead of my upcoming short film "Heartseeker"! Harold has it all - good looks, a well-paying job, a nice apartment, and yet for some reason finds himself dissatisfied. He seeks excitement, something to break the routine and monotony he has found himself in.

It was a fun night out for Shoyu Films at the Night It Up Night Market. There was so much yummy Asian street food! Michael met up with Cowin, who was helping out at the event. They were able to enjoy refreshing Chatime and Sumeshi, a blow torch infused Japanese sushi.

Still frames from 'Us,' my short film featuring @lindzoidjones , scored by @kuxxansuum and produced by the talented alumni of @jbfc_pville
---
The concept behind 'Us' was a gestation dating back since 2012, when Zach Cooper and I were developing a video for his King Garbage release "Green & Blue." When timing and resources didn't afford the opportunity for "Green & Blue," the backbone of the story - a woman is transformed through a ritual in a cave - materialized during my residency at the Jacob Burns Film Center.

I like to think of Us as the cinematic equivalent of a sand painting. Particularly in Tibetan Buddhism, sand paintings are meticulously constructed over a period of months only to be ritually brushed away shortly after they are completed. For monks, this meditative practice of creation and destruction is an affirmation of the impermanence of all things. The sounds and pictures that flash through our phones and on screens in dark rooms will last only so long as the technology necessary to access them does – and then they will disappear, leaving only the subtle impressions they’ve had on their creators and audiences, who will themselves disappear one day.

But Us is as much about transformation as it is about impermanence, from the shock of transition to an awareness and acceptance of the new state. The result of Lindsey’s ritual dance is not what she expects, but it is a new state of being, somehow both less fragile and more ephemeral. Like a rock that turns into sand, she’s not gone. She’s everywhere.

I equate 'Pony Blues' to 'Inferno,' and 'Us' to 'Purgatorio,' in a trilogy. Where the third will take place and when is uncertain, but like 'Paradiso,' my hope is that it takes the theme of transformation and opens it up into a large space, playing with spiritual concepts that have yet to mature, as I do (hopefully).
