ABOUT THE FILM
More About A Girl Named Kai from Director Kai Ling Xue
Three years in the making, shot in four countries, A Girl Named Kai is a brave and honest autobiographical vignette in three chapters about Kai Ling’s relationships, self discoveries, passions, secrets and dreams.
Using digitally-edited Super 8 and 16mm, this experimental short will take you through a true life journey from the highs of love to the lows of loss, delicately threaded together with original music. A Girl Named Kai sets out to challenge our society’s preconceptions of people who are considered “outsiders” while empowering the audience to continue to examine contemporary notions of internal and external social identities.
