A five-part series of 6-10 min episodes premiering daily from March 29 – April 2, 2021 on Instagram @otherlyseries.
FaceTime aims to explore the intimacy and power of family—both biological and chosen. It follows two Taiwanese-American siblings, Farrah and Andy, one living in Los Angeles and the other in New York City, as they navigate their identities and engage meaningfully with their individual communities, while their own sibling relationship evolves. Through self-documented phone footage and recorded FaceTime calls, the project explores these facets of self and examines how and when we choose to show our lives through technology.
This film is part of Otherly, a series of seven short documentaries about belonging, premiering on Instagram Stories.
FaceTime follows Andy and Farrah as they navigate their individual identities, chosen family, and relationship as bi-coastal siblings.
