Fiscal Sponsee: Reckless Spirits
RECKLESS SPIRITS is a hyperreal buddy comedy featuring two best friends—Yvette, a neurotic Asian American therapist, and Syd, a gender-fluid Latine performance artist—who are led by a series of supernatural events into an uncanny new world of psychics, spirits, and a cult leader that’s threatening to tear their friendship apart.
Directed by Vivian Hua
RECKLESS SPIRITS WILL BE RELEASED IN 2022!

Co-Writer / Director
Vivian Hua 華婷婷 (they/she) is a writer, filmmaker, and organizer with semi-nomadic tendencies. As the Executive Director of Northwest Film Forum in Seattle (Duwamish land) and Editor-in-Chief of the interdisciplinary arts publication, REDEFINE, much of their work unifies their metaphysical interests with their belief that art can positively transform the self and society.
In 2017, Vivian released the narrative short film, Searching Skies — which touches on the controversial topic of Syrian refugee resettlement in the United States — and co-organized a national film screening and civil rights discussion series entitled The Seventh Art Stand. In 2022, they will release Reckless Spirits, a BIPOC metaphysical buddy comedy and short film proof-of-concept, in anticipation of a feature-length project in development.
Vivian is passionate about cultural space, the environment, and finding ways to covertly and overtly disrupt oppressive structures. They also regularly share observational human stories through their storytelling newsletter, RAMBLIN’ WITH VEE!
