In White Rabbit, a dramatic comedy that will premiere at the upcoming Sundance Film Festival, comedienne Vivian Bang (who also co-wrote the screenplay with director Daryl Wein) plays a Korean-American performance artist who is dedicated to her art while also paying the bills by doing odd jobs on TaskRabbit.
In a new clip from the film, debuting exclusively here at The Hollywood Reporter, Bang’s character is seen going in for an audition where the director (Nico Evers-Swindell) seems confused about who she is.
“Would it be more helpful for you if you said it in, like, your native dialect?” he asks. It goes downhill from there as Bang’s character tries to explain to him that English is her native dialect.
White Rabbit will have its world premiere on Friday at 3 p.m. at the Park Avenue Theater in Park City, Utah, as part of Sundance’s NEXT section.
Wein, who founded Mister Lister Films with his wife and frequent collaborator, Zoe Lister-Jones, previously directed 2009’s Breaking Upwards (IFC Films), which premiered in competition at the SXSW Film Festival, and co-wrote and directed 2012’s Lola Versus (Fox Searchlight) starring Greta Gerwig.
Watch the new White Rabbit clip, above.
This year’s Sundance fest runs Thursday through Jan. 28.
