Chicago Asian American Showcase:: April 1 - 14, 2005
Presented by the Foundation for Asian American Independent Media (FAAIM) and the Gene Siskel Film Center of the School of the Art Institute.
Over the course of fourteen days, we will organize a feline revolt, learn the importance of flight safety, investigate the existence of an Asian male porn star, celebrate the poetry of Spam, get a lesson in "funetics", and bask in the glow of 12 hot women. The festival will showcase feature-length and short films, documentaries, music videos, animation and more -- all created and inspired by the Asian American experience. Opening night features Michael Kang's "The Motel" -- hot off its world premiere at the Sundance Film Festival, and closing night feature, Quentin Lee's ("Shopping for Fangs," "Drift") latest, "Ethan Mao" -- neither to be missed. The Showcase presents not only the best in Asian American filmmaking, but also music, visual art, and literature. Mark your calendars . . . we'll see you in April!
And join us for "A Conversation with Lauren Tom" honoring the career of a local talent and her work in theater, TV, and film.

All film programs are at the Gene Siskel Film Center, 164 N. State St (at Randolph). For more information: (312)836-2600 or http://www.siskelfilmcenter.org
