AN ASIAN AMERICAN FILM THING is a celebration of Asian- American filmmakers by screening their shorts. There will be an array of narrative fiction, docs, animation, music videos, sketches and experimental films.
We want to focus on shorts that show Asian- Americans in a light that the media usually never portrays us in. This night will explore Identity and the power of visual storytelling.
There will also be a musical treat at the end of the event!
Doors 6:30 PM, show 7:00 PM.
