I'm Grace Swee, the filmmaker of 'Yume'. Ask Me Anything!
Hi! Thank you for watching the film '夢 Yume’. I'm Grace the co-writer and director of this short film. I'm currently graduating from film school at Columbia and hope to keep telling stories. I have a penchant for writing female protagonists and love films that delve deep into a character's psyche.
The story was originated from my classmate and the co-writer/producer of this short, Minami Goto. Growing up, she had observed such stories of school girls feeling trapped by familial and societal expectations. It was my first time shooting in Tokyo and I'm really glad I got to experience filming overseas and filming a story of a different culture.
Feel free to ask me any questions you might have! (:
