Private Project

Good Taste

Jenny, a sexually curious, wide-eyed Asian woman, arrives at the chic home of Isabella and Theo after a successful happy hour date. Despite the couple making multiple racial microaggressions against her, Jenny stays as to not miss out on an erotic experience she desperately wants to have. The three of them have a hot hookup, and Theo and Isabella insist Jenny stay for dinner. Jenny's feeling more at ease, and the night seems to be going better than the initial missteps until she realizes she's in for something much scarier.

Director Statement

GOOD TASTE is about the fetishization of Asian women, and how desire and dehumanization can be intertwined. With the sociopolitical commentary of GET OUT and the campy colorfulness of SUSPIRIA (1977), GOOD TASTE asks, how can small "red flags" turn lethal? What are you willing to ignore in order to buy into a fantasy? What are the consequences of staying when you know something is off... and how do you escape?
