More about the project
GIRL, INTERPRETED is a bilingual Mandarin-English comedy about Lillian, an interpreter caught in a tussle of cultures and words during the most unexpected interpreting assignments.
Inspired by writer/director Grace Feng Fang Juan’s professional experience as an interpreter, the series was funded by the Screen Australia online production fund and developed and produced with the assistance of Film Victoria and Australian Film Television Radio School.
Every episode (5 x 5 mins) throws the heroine into a new field, a new situation, a new conflict; entering into the lives of Chinese migrants during the most crucial moments and tasked with voicing their grievances, passions and pleas to the wider Australian community.
Lillian stutters and stumbles her way through a world of “hectic” cultural misunderstanding. The series is inspired by Melbourne writer and director Grace Feng Fang Juan’s professional experience as an interpreter.
