When the local mosque is burned to the ground in an apparent hate crime, the town of Victoria must overcome its age-old political, racial, and economic divides to find a collective way forward. A Town Called Victoria is a Reel South and Independent Lens co-production.

Daughter of two physicists, Li discovered filmmaking via her lifelong passions of photography, ballet, and literature. After an adventurous immigrant upbringing spanning all three coasts, Li graduated high school in Sugar Land, TX, and received her BA from the University of Southern California’s School of Cinematic Arts. Her award-winning narrative television, feature, and documentary work has been supported by Sundance, Firelight Media, and others.
