I'm honored my film is featured for the "A Day in the Life of Asian Pacific America." A first time for all of us Asian Americans, who took photographs or video on May 10, 2014. 

The day is significant to the 145th anniversary of the completion of the Transcontinental Railway, which many Chinese immigrants worked on and never had recognition until now. 

My film is about my life living in the city of York and the distance between my family and I. It's a small town with a lot of potential. The piece focuses the sounds of the streets. It is a homage to my favorite documentary from Alan Berliner, "The Sweetest Sound."
