What happens when you cross a Wong Kar Wai-wannabe with Gen-Z entitlement?

From friends of Ma-Yi Theater Company Ron Domingo and family.

A Filipino American family in Staten Island is quarantined with an overbearing homeschool dad. There's no such thing as time off, so why not make a film of Oedipus Rex and Antigone that will surely please the College Board? 

In other words, what happens when you cross a Wong Kar Wai-wannabe with Gen-Z entitlement?


SOPHOCLES IN STATEN ISLAND.

This movie was filmed by members of one family while in quarantine at their home in Staten Island. Their friends helped them remotely with script, direction, editing, and equipment. Safety protocols such as physical distancing, and the wearing of masks were strictly observed. This is just one of the ways we can continue to create during these challenging days.
