“Join us for a film screening of Love Express, featured by the Queens World Film Festival and director by Patrick Chen.

The film is set on the 7 train line that operates from Manhattan to Queens, New York. It transports a mix class of commuters, predominantly Hispanics and Asians, to their station. Even though these commuters are different by their ethnicity and neighborhood; they all share the 7 line as a community.

As his reason behind the film, Patrick Chen states:

“As a subway rider, I have witnessed love, hate, sadness and happiness in these MTA trains. It has become an unphysical form of connection with these strangers that bind us together as New Yorkers. I wanted to focus Love Express on the perspectives of young Chinese-Americans and their lifestyle. It was important for me as a writer to capture a respectable persona of Asian Americans that delivers a positive and honest perspective of their characters in an everyday scenario that captures the “slice of life” moment.””
