An interview with Melody Niu discussing her successful short film BESIEGED which is being featured at the Philadelphia Asian American Film Festival and was part of the Diamond Screen Series MFA Thesis Showcase.
In Besieged, two Chinese immigrant half-brothers audition for the same prestigious film role. In a vicious effort to win the role, the elder brother stealthily sabotages the younger throughout their audition process. Besieged vividly depicts the darkness of jealousy threaded within sibling rivalry.
