synopsis
Sonnet 48 explores the beloved as a possession thieves might pray upon while the poet is on a journey. A photographer (poet) must take a journey, and is packing all of his valuables away to guard against thieves. Though he has taken great care to protect his possessions, he cannot do the same for the one thing dearer to him than all others' his beloved. He cannot put the youth under lock and key while he is away, for he is free. But every passer by might be tempted by the youth's beauty to steal him away. His beauty is such that it would tempt even honest men to theft.

director
Patrick Chen is a writer and director from Queens, New York. As a Chinese American filmmaker, surrounded by the immigrant lifestyle, he's converted his estranged nationality into stories of art and pictures. His short film "Love Express" has recently screened at various festivals, and was awarded with the Community Award for his dedicated contribution at the Queens World Film Festival. The film was praised by the Chinese community and described as heartfelt, nostalgic and a tribute to early Hong Kong cinema. His prior films were appointed as top finalists by the Asian American Film Lab's 72 Hours Shootout competition. They were showcased at AAIFF, AOFF, SAG-AFTRA Showcase and NYC Media. You may find his additional works as Chn X Ho 陳錫豪. He is currently producing his Chinatown based feature-length project, which to be slated in mid-2016.
