MAQUETTE

MAQUETTE 1:1000
Directed by Doris ChiaChing Lin / 2013 / 30 minutes

Impacted by the cultural shock in the foreign environment of the West, Lan Lin, a young
architect, makes a decision when faced with an experience she has dealt with before– an
unexpected pregnancy.

The film was created as part of Temple University’s MFA program, where the director
now teaches.  The US-based scenes in the film were set and shot in the Philadelphia.

TRIPTYCH2

TRIPTYCH
Directed by Hilary Brashear / 2013 / 10 minutes

A  documentary collage of three unique identities in a polyamorous relationship, this intimate
film is a short character study of the filmmaker and her two partners. Punctuated by the
recurring visual of a triptych, this lighthearted, non-linear collection of visuals and audio
redefines the line between love and friendship.

This film was produced as a final project for a documentary production class taught by filmmaker
Vicky Funari at Haverford College in Haverford PA.  Hilary Brashear now lives in West Philadelphia.
