I've been receiving questions from people who were wondering if I knew about any movies that had Asian Americans play a major character. With that said, I wanted to share some up-coming movies that will be shown at the Philadelphia Asian American Film Festival which will run from Wednesday, November 7th to the 17th. If you're interested, you can check out all of the movie trailers and times at http://www.PhillyAsianFilmFest.org/ Hope to see you there. :)
'Uploaded - The Asian American Movement' - Explores a generation finding its voice through new media. The documentary brings to light struggles and successes of leading Asian Americans–from both new media creators to long-time industry professionals–in the areas of music, film, and dance.
'Shanghai Calling' - Imagine a steady stream of immigrants, traveling across a vast ocean to a foreign country, searching for new jobs and better lives. But the immigrants are Americans, and the country they are moving to… is China. Shanghai Calling is a romantic comedy about modern-day American immigrants in an unfamiliar land.
