The rise of indie filmmaking has sure changed the way we view film concepts and structure. And in the case of romantic movies, there’s been more room to ask, what happens after love at first sight? And is falling in love really as simple as going on romantic dates, getting into superfluous fights, then flamboyantly making up in front of the stunned public?

Set in California during the Great Depression, Shangri-La is the romantic and imaginative confession of a Filipina farmhand, strong and unbridled even amidst a law forbidding interracial relationships at the time.
Written, edited and directed by Isabel Sandoval, Shangri-La is a commission from Women’s Tales, a short-film series by high fashion women’s brand Miu Miu.
