In 1979, the fatal shooting of a white crabber in the small Texas fishing village of Seadrift ignites a maelstrom of hostilities against the Vietnamese along the Gulf Coast. Most of these Vietnamese fishermen and their families had just fled their home country after a decades-long war, only to be confronted by angry fishermen and the KKK as they searched for a new home in a strange land.
Seadrift is a feature documentary by Tim Tsai, currently in production, that tells this incredible story of survival, perseverance, and ultimate triumph over dire circumstances. I am excited to be scoring this project. Check out the first teaser, featuring music by me.
