Olivia knows there is something wrong with her grandpa. He has been slowing down and unable to play his cello. In fact, master cellist Ansel Evans has been diagnosed with ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis). As his body shuts down, he makes the difficult decision to minimize the suffering for his closest loved ones by planning a farewell concert. But this decision won’t be an easy one to explain to Olivia.
Angie’s passion for filming took root early on. Born and raised in China, she has been influenced and attracted by the traditional and contemporary elements in Chinese culture. Two years ago, she moved to Los Angeles, CA USA in order to seek out visual boldness and humanity in films on a broader international stage. She has directed a number of narrative shorts and commercials for some of China’s biggest brands and looks forward to telling
universal human stories.
