Asian American Showcase: AAPI Shorts - CHICAGO!

Wed, May 22 6:00 PM
Seven films from emerging and established filmmakers from Chicagoland exhibit the rising wave of the AAPI film scene in the Windy City. In WHITEWASH (pictured, dir. Jerry Hsu) a queer Asian man discovers that he’s the only person of color in the neighborhood. Two estranged cousins reunite for a wedding in ARRANGEMENTS (dir. Thavary Krouch). In CHAMPION (dir. Kim J.Y. Han) a Korean girl seeks to rebuild a sense of community and mend her broken heart. The diaspora of Korean War orphans is poetically explored in THE BRIDGE (dir. by Chu Ki Won). In THE STORY OF A STRANDED FROG (dir. Steven Yao) a lonely Korean student in Prague takes care of her only friend: a pet frog. When Helen starts volunteering for a suicide helpline, she learns what happens when you want to help but don't know how in BEFRIENDING (dirs. Luyao Tian, Briana Lim). And memories reflect, refract, and reverberate in ALL THE WAYS TO SAY I LOVE YOU (dir. Maya Wanner).
