Directed by award-winning filmmaker and actress, Rachel Leyco, Bicultural is a short film following a second-generation “Filipina-American, who feigns a heterosexual relationship until her conservative family pressures her into marriage, her secret girlfriend gives an ultimatum. Tackling sexual orientation and culture, Leyco’s character “attempts to bridge the gap between her Asian identity and her American identity, within the narrative of faith and sexual orientation.”

Bicultural recently received the 2017 Official Selection at the Houston Asian American Pacific Islander Film Festival, North Carolina Gay & Lesbian Film Festival, Indianapolis LGBT Film Festival and Outfest Los Angeles and will be presented at the upcoming Seattle Asian Film Festival on February 25, 2018. Link, Link
