Storyline

A confident young man with a unique style and a solid entrepreneurial spirit has made it his mission to bring the small pleasures in life to a global market. As an aspiring inventor inspired by history's most infamous jokesters, he's determined to jump through all the hoops in order to realize his dreams. When he's not taken seriously amongst the locals stateside, he takes it upon himself to travel to Shanghai and broker a manufacturing deal on his own. Lost in Shanghai, Johnson discovers that it takes more than a bright idea to succeed. It takes guts, determination, and a fist full of sneezing powder. Written by Anonymous

A Must See For All Indie Lovers!
3 April 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Made In China is a comedy with heart that elevates indie film-making from the improv laden depths of mumble-core to new heights. I saw the film in Austin, TX and it was a true crowd pleaser. I promise you'll walk out of the theater with a big smile on your face. The screening I attended had Richard Linklater and Catherine Hardwicke in the audience which was cool. A great introduction to first time writer/director Judi Krant and a breakout performance from newcomer Jackson Kuehn, who is basically in every frame of the film. Jackson reminded me of the naive Ed Norton in Fight Club. Via Q&A so don't quote me on this, but the film was shot on location in Shanghai, China guerrilla style with a Panasonic P2 camera. It looked amazing! The film won the grand jury award at SXSW and Judi picked up the Egg & Chicken Emergent Female Award. Bravo to the everyone involved in this little indie gem. job well done!
