RECENT NEWS:


Wonderful review from filmandtvnow.com ahead of our International Premiere at the Paris International Film Festival!

https://www.filmandtvnow.com/paris-international-film.../

"Some movies I have encountered over the years have been such an idiosyncratic experience on first viewing but have nonetheless compelled me to watch again and again... Now, I have to add Chris Chan Lee’s SILENT RIVER, which for all intents and purposes will throw a few curveballs into the deeper reaches of your mind from the first half, which plays like David Lynch and Andrei Tarkovsky attempting to collaborate on a reboot of Wim Wenders’ PARIS, TEXAS (1984) – and a second half that emerges like a rural companion piece to EX MACHINA and WESTWORLD... It is very difficult to categorise this film and your own acceptance of what transpires will depend on your willingness to change perspective mid-point like (Chris Chan) Lee asserts to do, who has stated that the film is about existential crisis and what happens when our pre-occupations vanish."

SAN DIEGO ASIAN FILM FESTIVAL

“SILENT RIVER”
SAN DIEGO PREMIERE


Asian American Panorama Section

“There’s no decoder ring for SILENT RIVER, Chris Chan Lee’s gloriously hallucinogenic, sci-fi desert noir.  Lee rips apart the double helix of identity and memory and replaces it with a mobius strip—make that a mobius strap—lashing us to a ride that careens toward WTF borders, twisting and U-turning from beginning to end and back again. Dear Audience, simply surrender to the unnerving pleasures of Lee’s Lynchian cocktail of love on the run, motel showdowns, and Americana gone haywire.”- Christina Ree
