In this exclusive trailer for Asian Girls which will be debuting exclusively November 6, 2019 on Gunpowder & Sky’s horror brand ALTER two women, a Chinese factory worker (Rainbow Chan) and her Japanese neighbour (Stella Leung) are both unknowingly experiencing disturbing nightmares about each other. Written and directed by Hyun Lee, Asian Girls is a psychological horror short that will leave you questioning what you just watched and asking for more because you need to know what happens next.
Asian Girls has had a successful run on the festival circuit including it’s premiere at SXSW (South by South West) Film Festival in Austin in 2018, the Encounters Short Film Festival in Bristol, England and the Sydney Film Festival.
ALTER is a new horror brand for novel and grounded stories exploring the human condition through warped and uncanny perspectives. Giving voice to emerging, diverse and established filmmakers, ALTER’s owned and operated channel is distributed across YouTube and Facebook where three short films or series are released each week. In addition to curating and distributing award-winning content, ALTER develops unique stories with some of the most innovative minds in the genre through its ALTER Studio projects – which are not bound to a particular platform or format.
Recent releases include the official 2018 Sundance Film Festival selection, Summer of 84, the thriller directed by RKSS (Turbo Kid); CAM (in partnership with Blumhouse), winner of Best Screenplay at last year’s Fantasia Festival, which was acquired by Netflix; and Goodnight, Gracie from Stellan Kendrick, one of ALTER’s first exclusive premieres. Later this year, ALTER will release the SXSW selection Villains — starring Bill Skarsgard (It) and Maika Monroe (It Follows) — in theaters.
Projects currently in development include 50 States of Fright, in partnership with Executive Producer Sam Raimi (Evil Dead, Spider-Man) and DIGA Studios (MTV’s Scream). The anthology is the first announced series for Jeffrey Katzenberg’s new mobile video startup, Quibi.
