The Convergence: Real Life, Real Faith in the Reel World
Playing Tuesday, September 16th, 2014 in Eugene, OR at the Bijou
(New York, NY) Filmmaker Sharon Kon is quickly becoming an innovator in the genre known as faith films. “THE FATHER’S LOVE,” Ms. Kon’s first feature-length film, takes its inspiration from her own life as a twenty-something looking for love and adventure in the big Apple.
Born in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, Ms. Kon graduated with honors from Hunter College of The City University of New York with a B.S. in Film and Video Production. Ms. Kon is a director/producer who is passionate about producing films that have “aesthetic appeal and are thought-provoking, which are ultimately life-changing to each viewer.”
Infusing this “new wave” genre with high production values, real life situations, characters with a complex emotional range and cosmopolitan settings, not to mention quality actors from stage and the small screen, Ms. Kon hopes that she will inspire other faith filmmakers to tell stories that are relatable, well acted and void of clichés.
