While most movie theaters nowadays reserve to screening only very narrow scope of films, every opportunity to see a creative non-mainstream film is like a delicacy. NewFilmmakers LA is a non profit organization that serves this exquisite delicacy on monthly basis, allowing audience to discover new films and new filmmakers to showcase their work.
This month May 16 they are shining a spotlight on emerging Asian filmmakers from China, Japan and Korea.
Starting with a displaced Japanese American family trying to rebuild after World War II, two brazen brothers in rural China learning about Karma from a wily monk, a fearful barber in India learns to forgive, to an unscrupulous young man in Korea receiving a twisted form of justice, these stories represent the most exciting indie cinema emerging from that corner of the globe as well as our featured Asian American filmmakers. Join us in celebrating these amazing storytellers with eight spectacular films followed by filmmakers Q&A’s, and open bar receptions atop the AT&T Center’s outdoor balcony.
Check out the screening times on their website here, and if you live in LA – don’t miss out, it is happening tomorrow, May 16!
