First Review: Stories Forlorn

Stories ForlornThe Hollywood Reporter got a review up for the Hong Kong indie film STORIES FORLORN by Uri L. Schwarz and Jason Sankey and it’s a good one too. Unfortunately no word about the score, though. I wrote and produced the music for STORIES FORLORN during summertime last year. Go here to listen to a few sample tracks.

One of Stories Forlorn’s strengths is its dedication to treating non-Chinese Hong Kongers and mixed heritage characters as people rather than tokens or using them as shorthand for trouble. Sankey and Schwarz clearly understand this world, and are very careful to inject a thread of veracity into the dialogue and the images, which both lend the film a strong sense of time and place.
