Fiction and Other Realities
Directed by Steve Lee & Bobby Choy
Bobby Choy, a.k.a. singer-songwriter Big Phony, makes his directorial debut with the intimate semi-biographical musical drama. Bobby, a struggling Korean American singer-songwriter in New York, is suddenly given an opportunity to travel as a roadie for his best friend’s electro-pop band on a world tour. When they arrive in Seoul, Bobby decides to ditch the band and stay in this “land where everyone looks like him” to investigate a feeling that could potentially fill a major void in his life. He befriends Ina, a Korean busker facing her own personal struggles. They seem to find success as they lean on each other for support.
FICTION AND OTHER REALITIES celebrates self-worth and the human connection people can make even coming from opposite sides of the world — through decency and through the universal language of music, all from an outsider’s perspective.
