We Are Living Things

Jorge Antonio Guerrero and Producer Andrew K. Li in attendance.

About The Film

We Are Living Things follows two undocumented residents who after a chance meeting, discover that they are both in search of intelligent life in the universe. Solomon (Jorge Antonio Guerrero) lives in the back lot of a recycling plant in Brooklyn, obsessed with connecting to aliens whom he believes abducted his mother many years ago. Chuyao (Xingchen Lyu), who fled China, believes she was abducted as a child. The two decide to help each other find the proof they seek, all the while on the run from the law as fugitives. Along their journey, they give each other hope for the future.

About The Director

Antonio Tibaldi was born in Sydney, Australia but spent most of his formative years in Europe. He has worked as writer/director in the film industries of Europe, Australia and North America since 1992, when he co-wrote (with Gill Dennis) and directed “On My Own” which screened at Sundance 1993 and was nominated for 6 AFI awards (Australian Oscar Equivalent) and 1 Genie award (Canada’s Oscar equivalent). His films have been presented at festivals such as Berlin, Sundance, San Sebastian, Rotterdam, IDFA; and released by companies such as Miramax, Warner Bros., and Lion’s Gate. Right after 9-11 Antonio shot a series of documentaries for RAI (Italian TV). That experience led to an on-going collaboration with UNTV (United Nations TV) making documentaries to shed light on under-reported realities in South and Central America, Africa, and Asia. His projects have received the support of IFP (Independent Filmmaker Project), TFI (Tribeca Film Institute),FIND (Film Independent), WEMW (When East Meets West). Antonio is a current member of WGA, East. He is based in NYC.
