Sheldon Chau, UCI ’11, screens ‘Bullified’ this Monday in the Where You Least Expect Us program at the 2012 Los Angeles Asian Pacific Film Festival.

The film was shot in New York, where Sheldon Chau is an MFA Candidate in Cinematography at New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts.  Chau is a previous recipient of the Visual Communication’s Armed With A Camera Fellowship for Emerging Media Artists.
