In the heartfelt drama Gook, Eli (writer/director Justin Chon) and Daniel (David So) are two Korean American brothers who run their late father’s shoe store in a predominantly African American community of Los Angeles. They strike up a unique and unlikely friendship with an 11-year-old African American girl, Kamilla (Simone Baker), who feels closer to the brothers than she does to her own family. As Daniel dreams of becoming a recording artist and Eli struggles to keep the store afloat, racial tensions build to a breaking point in L.A. as the “infamous” L.A. Riots break out. Winner of the Best of Next! Audience Award at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival.
