Jamie, a hesitant Korean American woman, visits home for the holidays. She hopes to catch up and make some sort of connection with her family but instead, like in the past, feels isolated and alone. Through the experience of feeling like the black sheep once again, she looks to different forms of water as a means of comfort and re-connection.
Jane Hae Kim, is a Korean American multi-hyphenate artist living in LA. She was born and raised in Queens, New York. Due to her lack of focus as a child, and tendency for rebellion her parents quickly realized that the usual path of business, engineering or science would not be her forte. She found Art at a very young age. Animation in particular communicated so much to her, with the exaggerated gestures that these characters would use in order to express themselves. She came out to Art Center College of Design in Pasadena California after graduating Highschool and embarked on a journey of unexpected self discovery and expansion. Through that expansion she found singing and then acting, and soon after began her career as an actor. Jane Hae Kim’s acting credits include the TV series ‘Picard,’ the VR Game ‘Redway Manor’, and various other independent films and web series. Theatre credits include ensemble casting for, ‘The Women of 4G’ by Amy Tofte, a Nicholl Fellowship winner. And Lead casting in the Rock Goth Drama ‘sSISTERSs’ by queer feminist playwright and director Gina Young. Jane’s focus in her art has to do with figures in vulnerable settings. And to show how even in very intimate places we wish to hide and cover. The desire to voice other people’s experiences in order to expand the horizon of consciousness of what it means to be a human was profound within her. She found that writing and making her own film were a natural addition to continuing with that purpose. ‘WAVES’ is her debut film.
