Our feature film FOR IZZY is available on- demand beginning this Thursday November 15 on Amazon, iTunes, Google Play, and directly on http://forizzy.com, as well as on DVD from Amazon.
Starring Michelle Ang, the late Elizabeth Sung in her last role before her tragic passing, Jim Lau and Jennifer Soo, the Asian-American centric drama has won the Audience Awards at Frameline, Ashland Independent, and NY Asian American Film Festival, as well as the Grand Jury Prizes at the Los Angeles Asian Pacific Film Festival and Vancouver Asian Film Festival.
From writer-director Alex Chu, FOR IZZY is about the blending of broken families. Elizabeth Sung plays Anna, a successful business-woman and single mother struggling with a strained relationship with her 20-something queer daughter Dede (Michelle Ang). Her widower neighbor Peter (Jim Lau) is the caretaker of his millennial daughter Laura (Jennifer Soo) who is on the Autism spectrum. When Laura and Dede form an unlikely friendship they each bond with the other’s parent, ultimately bringing Peter and Anna together to find an unexpected later-in-life romance.
“Told with a blend of poignancy, humor, and grace, FOR IZZY is a deeply compassionate tale of resilience. It is about addiction, romance, and immigrant life told in a mixed media format combining spoken word poetry, animation, and in-character interviews.” – Frameline Film Festival
It’s been three years since we started working on this little film, and we’re so excited to finally share it with the world. We hope you’ll check it out!
