How far can one go to chase a goal?
The latest film from writer and director Alan Yang (“Master of None”), “Tigertail” explores the story of a Taiwanese factory worker who uproots his life in search of better opportunities in the U.S. However, immigrating to America is only the start of the hardships and conflicts he’ll have to grapple with later in life.
This is the first time Yang has written a feature production, but he’s no stranger to AAPI audiences. Yang made headlines after winning an Emmy for Outstanding Writing for a Comedy Series with “Master of None” back in 2017. As anti-Asian sentiment sadly becomes more prevalent due to the COVID-19 pandemic, “Tigertail” comes as an awakening to the American public to recognize the nuances of Asian American experiences.
“Tigertail” stars veteran actor Tzi Ma, rising star Christine Ko and “The Edge of Seventeen” heartthrob Hayden Szeto. The movie is set to hit Netflix on April 10, so while we’re waiting, let’s watch the trailer here.
