Filmmakers from around the world channel their creativity for NETFLIX

During the very first lockdown, Johnny Ma joined acclaimed filmmakers from around the world to channel his creativity in bite-sized shorts for this extraordinary anthology documenting life in isolation during Covid-19. The collection has original shorts by Ana Lily Amirpour, Kristen Stewart, Rachel Morrison, Rungano Nyoni, Naomi Kawase, Maggie Gyllenhaal and many more.

Episode 13 was shot entirely on phone by friends and family Johnny was isolating with in San Sebastian Del Oeste, Mexico. An open letter to his mother in China – which she may never see, since she doesn’t watch Netflix. Hidden within it is a dumpling recipe, passed through generations, not only his favourite but also hers.
