Audition Description

Beautiful Stories is comprised of three short films (NURSE, I LOVE YOU, and LABOR DAY RETREAT). Each impressionistic, historical vignette is a standalone film; together they comprise a series about the intimate, inter-generational struggles of Korean American experience as impacted by war and militarism, global diaspora, and cross-racial solidarities in the late-Civil Rights movement. The project also highlights an overlooked chapter of international labor history: the influx of Asian medical nurses and doctors into the US workforce in the 1960s and 1970s as a result of census-changing immigration legislation. ***Finalist for the 2018 Barbara Hammer Award and Recipient of the 2018-19 Hellman Foundation Fellowship****

  • **MUST SPEAK/READ KOREAN FLUENTLY Serious, sorrowful, and beautiful. Shin-ja is a young nurse who has migrated on her own from South Korea to the United States. She’s left her family, friends, lover – her whole world behind. Across the three episodes, she moves from living in a nurse dormitory in Philly to married life in the suburbs. A sense of loss pervades across the years, even as a young person. She could have been a doctor; she could have been a writer; she could have had another life…

  • **MUST SPEAK/READ KOREAN FLUENTLY Pretty, garrulous, flirty. Punchy humor. Nani, like her friend Shin-ja, is a young immigrant nurse. She has a goal to succeed in the US but wants to look cute while doing it. She doesn’t come from much money, but it doesn’t stop her. She’ll go down fighting if she has to — and no one, not even her best friend, will drag her down.

To the person who's dedication in designing the Explore Talent website to help people like me fulfill a desire as great as mine. I really appreciate your website. Just wanted to drop a note to express my gratitude. On Friday, February 27, I was given an opportunity to be an extra in a Bittersweet film. I met very nice people and my overall experience was great, exciting and rewarding. Thank you so much. I have something else coming up at the end of March. I am so excited.
