American Film Showcase invites FOREVER, CHINATOWN

Added on by james chan.

American Film Showcase, the premier film diplomacy program bringing screenings and workshops to audiences in more than 40 countries has selected FOREVER, CHINATOWN and Producer/Director James Q. Chan to serve as film envoy for the 2017-2018 AFS Program. A partnership between U.S. State Department and USC’s School of Cinematic Arts, we are thrilled to be invited and excited about the potential upcoming AFS program to use our film to spark dialogue and empower local communities to tell their own stories.

Gratitude to Los Angeles Asian Pacific Film Festival and Visual Communications for the honor.

As we travel back in time with artist Frank Wong and navigate through each of the miniatures, we are transported much like Dorothy arriving into Oz. These tiny Technicolor dreamscape worlds are culturally distinct interiors. Buddhist shrines, mahjong tables, plates of Asian food, stocked cabinets of Spam and Jell-O and See’s Candies, are all refreshing departures from the conventional Victorian dollhouse. Juxtaposed against this miniature world is a more improvised, unpolished reality capturing Frank through handheld vérité coverage.

First one to the front, reach back. Public television/radio have been consistent in showcasing AA stories because you, Center for Asian American Media, have been on the front lines advocating and consistently reaching back to move our stories from the sidelines to the center for the past 35 years.

Petition signed, CAAM membership renewed, and proud to stand alongside you, in sickness and health, for public media preservation.

Dorothy Quock (Researcher, "Forever, Chinatown") and I have taken Tai-chi Chuan lessons since October 2015. Twice per week I'd pick her up at her apartment, and we would walk down the hill into Chinatown. Here are some of Dorothy's "exercise" ensembles. #nextlevel #classact #sheroe

On behalf of Good Medicine and the "Forever, Chinatown" team, HAPPY NEW YEAR x 2!!
