In 2008, during the last month of summer before high school begins, an impressionable 13-year-old Taiwanese American learns what his family can't teach him: how to skate, how to flirt, and how to love your mom.

DÌDI (弟弟) is a true indie film that will rely on a strong grassroots campaign and word-of-mouth to reach targeted audiences. The arthouse audience loves the film and the AAPI community feels deeply connected to it as well since Sean drew on personal experiences when exploring the narrative of what it means to be Asian American. Numerous screening attendees have mentioned how they see their own family represented on screen. Everyone will be able to relate to the universal themes of growing up, fighting with your siblings, making (and losing) best friends, and realizing that family ties are more important than you think.

The film stars Izaac Wang, Joan Chen, Shirley Chen, and Chang Li Hua, a scene-stealer in the film who also starred in NAI NAI & WÀI PÓ and is Sean’s real-life grandmother. DÌDI (弟弟) premiered at the Sundance Film Festival winning both the U.S Dramatic Audience Award and the U.S. Dramatic Special Jury Award for Best Ensemble Cast. Since then, the film has screened at numerous film festivals across the country including SXSW, SFFILM, the Los Angeles Asian Pacific Film Festival, Seattle International Film Festival, and many more. Let’s stay connected to any regional film festivals that have screened the film and have them support the release date.
