Hide and Seek is a short film that speaks to the societal challenge that women, and especially women of color, endure every day. To look in the mirror and to hope to see a face other than your own. One that is closer to what magazines, television and movies define as beautiful or even normal. What face do you see when you look in the mirror?
Lia Chang (Big Trouble In Little China, New Jack City, King of New York) stars in Hide and Seek, a film she co-produced and co-wrote with Garth Kravits (The Drowsy Chaperone, “The Blacklist,” “Nurse Jackie,” “Hostages” ), who is also featured in the film. Hide and Seek addresses the topic of media images that validate beauty in contemporary America. Hide and Seek was named among the top ten films of the 2015 Asian American Film Lab‘s 72 Hour Shootout -Two Faces – Filmmaking Competition, and Chang received a Best Actress nomination for her starring role. Kravits shared camera operator duties with Evan Daves, composed the original score with Tyler Kent, directed and edited the film.
What people are saying about Hide and Seek.
“Your award was so well-deserved. You and Garth made a stunning movie that drew on so many things you know, and was therefore filled with truth and beauty. Not to mention, that it was deeply satisfying to see you in front of the camera — again.”
Tony award winning playwright David Henry Hwang, 72 Hour Shootout Judge
“I think that at some level, all people of color can relate to it. Hell, not just people of color…ALL people. The kind of messages about “body type” and “ideal look” that are thrown at us constantly, it resonates across the board.
Filmmaker Aaron Woolfolk
“Thank you for addressing the topic of media images that validate beauty in contemporary America.”
