Leading them to live in the grey.
With the release of the Shutter Original, They Live In The Grey, LRM Online‘s Emmanuel Gomez talked with the Vang brothers about the film. What makes their film special is the meaning behind the film. It’s a story based on some of the feelings and emotions their mother had been keeping from them for years, after losing their brother at a young age. They are very close to their parents to the point where they help them on set. Sometimes with projects, sometimes with food, but always with their full-hearted support.

They share with us these stories during the interview. As well as share with us their thoughts on their lead actress Michelle Krusiec, who they had to fight for to be their lead. Studios were interested in their story, just not an Asian-American actress. Luckily, Shudder believed in what they were trying to make and took the film as the brothers intended to shoot it. For them, it was very important to have representation for the many Asian-Americans that live here in the states that are just like everyone else. They did not want to have to lean on heavy cultural references but instead focused on their story. It was a fantastic interview that you can check out down below!
