Randy Lao’s short film Hindsight is screening this weekend during the 15th Annual Garden State Film Festival in Atlantic City. The 28-minute film focuses on a tormented and suicidal man that has the ability to see horrific visions. A riveting story unfolds as the unique individual lures a murderer for his own demise. Hindsight is a must-see in the festival lineup. Director Randy Lao keeps you on the edge of your seat. There are many moments where Hindsight leaves the viewer breathless.

"We are thrilled to have been accepted to be a part of the Garden State Film Festival," said Randy Lao, director and producer of Hindsight. "I'm very excited to have the opportunity to share this short among the filmmaker communities. I'm very proud of our diverse cast and crew, I wouldn't have been able to do it without their talents and dedication. As this film explores the complexities of suicidal behaviors, I hope the dark nature of the short will open further discussions on the topic of suicide and the conflicts it imposes on humanity."

Hindsight made its festival debut this past fall on October 26, 2016 at FEARnyc, New York City’s biggest horror film festival. Randy Lao wrote, directed and produced Hindsight through his production company Zen Station. The film Hindsight stars actors David Kukla, Mallory Wu, Rob Moretti and Jennifer Sneed.

About Randy Lao
Randy is an aspired filmmaker and an avid daydreamer. While he loves films of all genres, he tends to gravitate towards the dark side of things. His first attempt at directing and editing at the Asian American Film Lab 72 hours challenge earned him a nomination for best short and best editor. His 5-hour energy drink commercial was one of the top finalists for the company's crowdfunding campaign. His pursuit of the arts and creative collaborations is what drives him as a person. Randy currently resides in Highland Lakes, New Jersey.
