A New Musical
by Melissa Li and Kit Yan
Due to COVID19 and the unexpected hold on our beloved industry, current plans for development and production in 2021 are TBD.
Interstate is a Queer Asian-American pop-rock musical about two trans people at different stages of their journeys, navigating love, family, masculinity, and finding community in the era of social media. It charts Dash, a transgender spoken word performer as he goes on a cross-country tour with Adrian, a lesbian singer-songwriter, as the activist band, Queer Malady, fueled by the allure of fame and a desire to connect with the Queer Asian community. The band’s fiercely political and deeply personal music touches Henry, a transgender teenage blogger living in middle America, who finds solace in their art as he struggles with his own identity and family.
A Short Film
Jesca makes her film directing debut in Filmelodic's new sci-fi short. At a time when the United States is increasingly divided along ideological lines, we have become more entrenched in our own narratives and echo chambers. American Quartet explores how we could use technology to understand and therefore empathize with “the others” in society.
The universal language of Dvořák’s beautiful music drives the film and allows the characters to tell their stories wordlessly.
