Trailer for Living in Seduced Circumstances.
Ian Gamazon (Cavite) crafts a deceptively simple revenge tale in which Mr. Thanh, (Long Nguyen, Journey of the Fall, Heaven and Earth) is kidnapped and brutally tortured by a mysterious woman (Quynn Ton). As his captor tests Mr. Thanh's mental and physical limits to their utmost, every assumption the audience makes is similarly tested and shattered. The climax is a collision of universal Freudian sexual dynamics with the bitter realities of the Vietnamese-American experience. Nothing in this taut tale is quite what it seems, and the final scenes are as surprising as they are psychologically intriguing. Gamazon delivers his most polished work to date, once again exploring the connections between family, politics, violence and responsibility.
