SY’s Short on Shorts: Si (2020)

Si is a short film that exposes the dual triggers of living within disparate intersectionalities. Ki Hong Lee plays Si, a young teenager who pitches for his baseball team. He’s one of the boys and can be seen roughhousing with the others in the locker room.

He’s content to be in his friend group and be one of the guys, but his friends are still trying to reconcile how he is with how they’ve been taught people like him are.

He endures several micro-antagonisms and is forced to reconcile with a culture he resembles but doesn’t have the strongest connection to. We see him as he constantly considers his own skin and seems to wonder what about it is so different? It’s a beautiful watch and is available now on HBO Max

Runtime: 10 min
