Fortissimo Films has picked up worldwide rights to writer-director Ray Yeung’s dramatic comedy Front Cover.
Currently in advanced post-production, the English-language New York-based feature follows a gay Chinese American fashion stylist who detests his cultural heritage until an assignment to style an actor from Beijing leads him to examine his cultural identity.
Jake Choi and James Chen star.
Front Cover will mark the second film from Yeung, whose first foray Cut Sleeve Boys made its premiere at Rotterdam and won Best Feature at La’s Outfest Fusion Festival.
Producers are NewVoice Productions and producer Kaer Vanice with co-producer Chowee Leow.
