New Talent at Vancouver Asian Film Festival
Coming up with a storyline for a movie is never easy, but sometimes the idea is right in front of you. Director Quentin Lee found inspiration from the 2005 murder of 19-year-old Simon Sek Man Ng, whose final blog post helped police solve his case. Lee was so moved by the incident that he adapted Simon’s story into a short film titled "Today Has Been Weird," part of the series "Love Letters to Vancouver." The short is premiering at the 15th Vancouver Asian Film Festival, which starts Friday, November 3, 2011 and runs until Monday, November 6, 2011.
