Descry moves your soul and challenges your perspective
19 August 2016 | by danicemaxineSee all my reviews

My incredible friend Jenna Bleecker created this stunningly powerful and thought provoking film that's been killing it at the festivals and most recently at the historic Chinese Theatre here in Hollywood.

Descry Short Film speaks to the inexcusable ethnic discrimination, stereotypes, and positions that people take, in both active and passive ways and it made me devastated, angry, disgusted, uncomfortable and indignant. There are truths about the way that the Asian American is represented and I stand taller every day because of it. I won't say what or how, just that you should see if for yourself. Congrats to Jenna, cast, crew, Anthony Gilardi for making / being a part of something so very painstakingly raw and in your face -- literally. It moves me to tears.

If you come across an opportunity to see and support Descry and female filmmakers, I recommend doing so. You will leave feeling ____________.
