the Film


Surrender is the story of a young Asian female - a recovering compulsive gambler that relapses after 100 days of abstinence. The film attempts to confront and dismantle the harmful media image of the Asian female stereotype – docile, quiet, invisible – leading to discrimination and conversations about gender roles in society linked to racism and sexism. Surrender premiered at The Directors Guild of America as part of LA Asian Pacific Film Festival's 38th edition in the spring of 2022 and is currently traveling through the film festival circuit.
