Entirely Shot on iPhone, Nian is an alternative take on Chinese New Year folklore that traditionally portrays the titular character as a terrifying monster. In this version, a brave little girl confronts her fear of the unknown by seeking out the elusive Nian. When she discovers he was misunderstood all along, a beautiful friendship ensues. Created in partnership with a Golden Globe-nominated director, this 12-minute heartwarming tale encouraged people to embrace possibilities outside their comfort zones as the world grappled with uncertainty into the new year.
