I'm always excited to discover new and exciting genre work by women of color, but it isn't always easy. I've been fortunate to be in the company of those with similar interests who have shared some filmmakers and their work with me. Women of color continue to surprise me with their imaginations by creating some of the most remarkable shorts I've seen. Below are some recent trailer favorites and finds.
My Mom & Other Monsters (2011)
Writer/Director: Kate Tsang
San Francisco Bay Area transplant from Hong Kong, Kate grew up watching horror and a lot of television, which may have lead to some odd jobs with her local police department and shadowing morticians. A part of NYU's FMA Film Program, she's developed My Mom And Other Monsters, a darkly bright look at what happens when you're mom is a complete twit but your other-worldly, fancy free friends have a way of remedying your bleak, parental circumstance. Kate also specializes in special effects makeup.
