Young and driven twenty-somethings often face the same problem; they posses an abundance of passion, but lack ways to manifest it. In an age where immediacy pervades our lives, it’s hard to find the time to let inspiration in. This story puts a sharp focus on those fears; It is an unflinching look at the creative process and all its highs and lows. “There is a New World Somewhere” is a coming-of-age story of a woman who has lost her way. Sylvia, a troubled woman, comes back to her Texas hometown for a friend’s wedding. The night before, she meets Esteban, a mysterious drifter, who dares her to come on a roadtrip through the Deep South. The film unravels into an intimate portrayal of two souls who have lost direction in life, both trying to fight self-doubt and the doubt of others. Like “Y Tu Mama Tambien” and “Paris, TX?” You’ll fall in love with this film.
“There is a New World Somewhere” is a feature film written and directed by USC Alumna Li Lu (’09). Her team is near completion on their crowdfunding campaign on Seed&Spark, a platform built exclusively for independent films and filmmakers. To promote their campaign, Lu’s team has reached out to well-known travel bloggers by taking roadtrips with them across the South – mainly to encourage others to be more adventurous. They want to connect with the millennial generation through their film and inspire people along the way.
They have only 14 days left on their campaign, so your support is much needed and appreciated! This is as indie as indie gets!
