Stealing School Interview: Li Dong

Over the past few years, we’ve heard of a few infamous stories on the wealthy taking advantage of their situation to give their family a more direct line to better colleges. However, after watching the new film Stealing School, directed by Li Dong, I have to wonder how many crazy tales there are regarding troubles and tribulations at your local schools. This particular tale revolves around a young woman that is accused of plagiarism by her T.A. This dramatic comedy swiftly allows the viewer inside the hidden meetings that take place when trouble is brewing, and it features a strong cast that includes Celine Tsai, Jonathan Keltz, and more.

We Live Entertainment had the wonderful opportunity to sit down with Li Dong and talk about his latest. The writer/director is incredibly engaging and very knowledgeable about the subject he explored. He opened up about his focus on the comedic side of the event and finding the right tone for this intriguing feature film. It was a fantastic conversation, and it was a real pleasure chatting with this talented filmmaker. If you are looking for something unique and entertaining, please seek out Stealing School, which is currently available on your favorite streaming platform.
