    Writer-Director Erica Eng talks with Jesus Figueroa, @ThisFunktional of ThisFunktional.com, about her short film AMERICANIZED.

    Director Erica Eng’s AMERICANIZED shares the story of a teen growing up in Oakland’s hip hop culture who struggles to fit in – on and off the court. The film, which was shot entirely in Oakland, CA at Eng’s own alma mater Skyline High School, has become Oscar-qualified after winning “Best Dramatic Short” at their world premiere at Cinequest.

    Eng wrote and directed the film based on her experiences.

    The film stars non-binary actor Terry Hu (Disney’s Z-O-M-B-I-E-S 3 and winner of the 2018 ABC Digital Talent Competition) alongside, Amber Gaston (20th Century Fox short - Alien). The stunning cinematography was created by Drew Daniels (Waves and the Oscar-winning short film “Skin”).

    Americanized has just begun its festival run and screened at Atlanta Film Festival and LA Shorts International before taking home the “Best Short Film” at Geena Davis’s Bentonville Film Festival and the “Young Cineastes Award” at the Palm Springs International ShortFest.
