Down River 溯源 Trailer by Cy Yan
Please tell us more about your business: I’m a writer / director / producer. I am currently prepping my first feature film that I’ve written and will direct. We are shooting in Shanghai this fall!
Here’s a link to the trailer of the short I shot that is proof of concept for the feature I’m shooting in the fall. This is a trailer for my NYU thesis short film that I shot in Shanghai. I adopted a small portion of a feature script I wrote into a short story about a down-on-his-luck pig farmer that must pay back his debt and seeks help from his sister and son – only to find that he may have pinned his hopes on the wrong dream. In the background of this story is the true event in 2013 where 16,000 dead pigs were found floating in a river towards Shanghai. The short helped raise money for the feature version – Dead Pigs – which we are set to start filming this fall. – Cy Yan
