It’s not just any NYU senior thesis that was being shot at The Basilica Parish of the Sacred Hearts of Jesus and Mary in Southampton Friday morning—It’s Something About Wonder, YiYi Han‘s latest film.
Han is well known to Cannes Film Festival audiences for her work. Her latest short stars East Hampton’s own Rebecca Kiembock, a former Dan’s Papers intern. It’s a “very dark comedy” according to Han. “It’s about a hopeless romantic who decides to murder her best friend’s bride on her wedding day, but her car breaks down on the beach, where she meets a hearse driver,” she says.
The crew filmed on Tiana Beach yesterday and will be heading back there again, they will also be shooting on Dune Road. We’re “filming all over the Hamptons,” Han says.
