The Suitcase (行李箱 )
Folkstar Productions recently produced the short film called “The Suitcase”. It premiered at the REEL Asian International Film Festival in Toronto and is about a little girl from rural China whose mother attempts to calm her down as she is smuggled to Canada inside a suitcase. As she confronts airline attendants, guard dogs, and baggage handlers from within the suitcase, the mother paints a rosy picture of her surroundings in order for her not to panic.
This live action / animated film deals with the resilience of immigrants, and the lengths they go through to establish a better future for their family. It is currently on the festival circuit. More information available at www.suitcasefilm.com
