Now available on Digital and Blu-ray/DVD, Searching brings the classic missing person film plotline into the modern day and social media era.
The film stars John Cho (Star Trek, Harold & Kumar) as David Kim, a father who is searching for his missing daughter. When the police investigation comes up short with no potential leads, Kim takes matters into his own hands. He then begins a deep dive into his daughter’s life online through photos, social media accounts, emails, videos and more to help with the police investigation. It’s a thrilling ride of a film which explores the deep, dark world of the Internet.
In addition to Cho, the film also stars Emmy Award winner Debra Messing (Will & Grace), Joseph Lee (NCIS: Los Angeles) and Michelle La in her feature film debut. Searching is the feature film debut for writer-director Aneesh Chaganty, and writer-producer Sev Ohanian. The film was executive produced by Maria Zatuloyskaya, Ana Liza Muravina, Igor Tsay and co-produced by Congyu E. The film was produced by Timur Bekmambetov, Ohanian, Adam Sidman, and Natalie Qasabian.
