A Message from Oliver Chen
My name is Oliver Chen, producer of a short film called “Somewhere Else“.
“Somewhere Else” (The Case of Huy) tells a complex story about love, desire, and betrayal, and explores the innermost struggle of two gay men between ideal and reality. The film is set in Washington, D.C., and is being shot on location here in DC.
Mike, a middle-aged Caucasian man meets Huy, a young Vietnamese immigrant. Many things set them apart: looks, age, and temperament, to name a few. But much to their surprise, they find they have some common ground. Mike’s ex-boyfriend always demanded proof of Mike’s devotion to him, but kept cheating on Mike. On the other hand, Huy has a long distance relationship with a guy he has never met. However, Huy needs a man who is close to him and able to support his material needs; and that person seems to be Mike.
This film is not trying to answer all the hard questions we face in life, but rather to provoke thinking about the relationships we let ourselves in. Somewhere Else is a place to be free, to let go and to fall in love.
Some AFW friends may find this story relative and we would love Somewhere Else to have a place in your heart too, if it first gets a chance to be introduced to your eyes. We truly hope you can help us present the film to the world and we sincerely appreciate your support!
