Documentary short film by Xinyi Zhu
Four friends, all Chinese internationals in the U.S., gather virtually to have a quaran-zine making session as a means of sharing and connecting.
After living in the US for 7+ years, our Chinese identities are complicated by immigration restrictions and canceled flights. But documenting our journeys during the COVID-19 pandemic by hand-making zines provides a meditative and healing counter-balance.
Quarantine-zine Connections is one of the many great projects shared with CineAsian Films through our submissions process. If you’d like to join them, submit your film.
Director: Xinyi Zhu
