White Now PleaseDirected by Kyle Lau
White Now Please is a comedic short film about a 12-year-old Asian American boy named Bryan Chen who wants to be a hero, so he tries to become the thing he knows all heroes are… White. Because in this world, “race exchanges” are possible, and we witness his journey to see if he actually goes through the process of “white-ifying” himself or if he remains the un-hero-like kid he believes he is.
