What We Talk About When We Talk About Lights, Camera, and Action
is a satire of ourselves as young filmmakers. It is a story about a young aspiring filmmaker returning
to China to direct his first feature. He struggles against the rest of the cast and crew, trying to
pitch his new screenplay as the production starts to fall apart. The film won New York Film Awards’ Best
Acting Ensemble and Best Student Film (Honorable Mention).
