ORIONDirected by Kyung Na Park
Cast: Kyung Na Park, Matthew Ivler, Youssef El Mosalami
After a recession forces his parents to repatriate, Orion Nam is blindsided by news of his grandfather’s terminal illness. To see him, Orion would have to obtain a travel permit which offers no guarantee back inside US borders. Leaving, too, would mean saying goodbye to the small one-bedroom apartment that had been his childhood home. In this short animated film, Orion navigates his undocumented status and attachment to home as he chooses what matters most.
