Late last year saw a staunch new effort in reimagining a bygone era of New York City based the work of author Henry Chang, with crowdfunding efforts toward independent pilot/short, A Father’s Son. Having brought in the likes of actors Tzi Ma (Netflix’s Wu Assassins) and Perry Yung (Cinemax’s Warrior), director Patrick Chen now introduces fans to the hopeful birth of a new screen hero in New York City police detective Jack Yu, introducing famed actor and comedian Ronny Chieng debuting the character in dramatic fashion.

There’s very little of old New York left that folks currently in their late thirties and older may remember. Part of that legacy inherently includes Chinatown of the 1990s which filmmaker Patrick Chen hopes to capture following his current kickstarter for shortfilm/pilot, A Father’s Son.
