With the coming of May is the celebration of Asian Pacific American Heritage Month and HBO is using that opportunity to showcase their Asian Pacific American Visionaries, a collection of three short films by emerging APA directors on May 1st across various HBO platforms. I had the pleasure of watching them during the Los Angeles Asian Pacific Film Festival and I’m excited that they will available for the public to see starting today on HBO NOW, HBO GO, HBO On Demand and HBO Zone throughout the month of May.

The three shorts are:

Wonderland” (dir. by Tiffanie Hsu) – The film explores lonely and surreal world of a 12-year-old girl whose mother is a gambling addict.
