Filmmaker Joe Chang never pictured himself making a film like Present, but after meeting some very interesting and entertaining people (Nesey Gallons, Faith Callaway, Mariana Templin, and Teaadora Nikolova), he decided to combine them with some of his favourite things and see what happened. The result is a beautiful story about an awkward performance artist and his sister taking a road trip to revisit their childhood hometown. Featuring a soundtrack written and performed by Nesey Gallons, the film is hoped to be shown at some festivals in 2012.
