SXSW 2019 - Go Back to China

Less than a year ago I was in Asia shooting “Go Back to China” - this past weekend we had our world premiere at SXSW! This is my second time at the festival and it’s still one of my favorites. I got to be reunited with our cast/crew, though someone very important was missing - our writer/director Emily Ting, who is having twins.

We had a full weekend of screenings, press, and sloths. I was thrilled to see some old friends who now live in Austin, too.

I didn’t get to eat as much as I did when I was in Austin for Thanksgiving, but I did get a little BBQ at the afterparty for “Olympic Dreams.”

could not stop eating this meat - la Barbecue

“Go Back to China” continues to travel the festival circuit - I’ll be coming soon to Chicago and San Diego! Follow us @gobacktochinafilm and @mslynnchen for updates.
