Thicker Than Water by TerryandTheCuz
In countries all over the world, very different people share the same dream: The American Dream. They don’t just want to live like Americans: they want to BE AMERICAN.
After decades of absorbing American pop culture, two Malaysian screenwriters set out to write the perfect American film but which is it? The liberal-arthouse-movie which America needs or the white-savior-summer-action blockbuster movie which it wants?
Low on sleep, high on caffeine and short on time, these two dreamers must find common ground quickly if they are to achieve their pursuit of identity, fame and fortune.
Can these two Malaysians convince America that they are more American than apple pie? It’s go time! Take me out to the ball game and bring the rain! USA! USA! USA!
Thicker Than Water is a collaboration between artists from Malaysia and Australia about America. This project is generously supported by The Cultural Economic Development Agency Malaysia (CENDANA), The Australia Council for the Arts, The Consulate General of Malaysia (New York) and Bluestone Lane.
