Premiering Saturday at Tribeca Film Festival, Two Sentence Horror Stories is an anthology series inspired by the viral fan fiction. Created by Tribeca Film Institute Fellow Vera Miao, the disturbing tales of horror use the genre to explore important social issues.
“As a filmmaker, you have to bring your unique point of view to the stories you tell,” Miao tells OUT. “So sure, some legacy of those experiences are in there as influences for who I am as a person and therefore a storyteller. But for me, it’s not confessional or autobiographical. I’m proud of being Chinese American and queer and I’m going to fight for the beauty and specificity that it gives me as a storyteller overall because it’s dope, but I’m not defined by those categories either.”
