THIS ADVENTURE CALLED CALIFORNIA
(22 min) US



Director/Producer: Jennifer Huang

Description:

Determined to prove himself to his estranged family, Arnoldo travels from Tijuana to San Francisco with a promise of steady work. Instead, he becomes a slave: sixteen hour workdays, no pay, meager food. After gaining his freedom, Arnoldo struggles with homelessness, continued exploitation, and the lasting impacts of trauma. But a chance encounter with a stranger starts to change his luck and gives Arnoldo hope that he might yet return home with his head held high.

Biography:

Jennifer Huang, who is currently directing and producing The Long Rescue, a film about girls rebuilding their lives after sex trafficking, has always felt driven to stand with people fighting discrimination, poverty, oppression, and injustice. For almost two decades, her work in documentary and television production has brought her to unexpected roles in disparate places: scrubbing in for a kidney transplant at the Mayo Clinic, writing questions for Colin Powell about African American soldiers in WWI, booking an interview with Hugh Jackman in the middle of Sydney Harbor, and being questioned in a shipping container in Papua New Guinea. Jennifer has worked as a writer, co-producer, and associate producer for PBS, Anonymous Content, the Travel Channel, HGTV, TNT, and AZN TV. She was a BAVC MediaMaker Fellow and developed the augmented reality project, “Finding Sacred Ground,” in the BAVC Producers Institute. As a cofounder of Hyphen, an Asian American news and culture magazine, Jennifer edited the investigative and film stories.
