Congratulations to Vincent Lin, AABDC 2021 Outstanding 50 Honoree and Valiant Pictures' founder, director, and executive producer. His new feature film - Snakehead, stars Shuya Chang (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: Sword of Destiny), Sung Kang (Fast & Furious, Better Luck Tomorrow), and Jade Wu (Luke Cage, The Motel). The narrative film is inspired by the true story of Sister Ping (Cheng Chui Ping) and the Chinatown-based snakehead syndicate, who escorted Chinese immigrants into the United States for nearly two decades.
Synopsis: Sister Tse comes to New York through a Snakehead, a human smuggler. She gains favor with the matriarch of the family of crime and she rises the ranks quickly. Soon Tse must reconcile her success with her real reason for coming to America.
Written and directed by Evan Jackson Leong (Linsanity), the film was acquired by Samuel Goldwyn Films and Roadside Pictures for limited theatrical release in October 2021 and currently available digital and on-demand through Apple TV. This film was produced by Arowana Films and 408 Films in association with Valiant Pictures and King Street Pictures. Vincent acted as associate producer.
