Got this sent out from Taiyo Na and wanted to post it on up for all the folks kicking on down to AAIFF (or thinking about it just in case you needed another reason to get on out):
I just want to let people know about the 2 films I'll be presenting this Sunday, July 26th at the 32nd Annual Asian American international Film Festival. The films I will be presenting are Manilatown is in the Heart which will be preceded by A Song for Ourselves. I'll be moderating the Q&A after the screening, as well.Taiyo is also going to be performing on down at the following events
These 2 poignant films honor 2 incredible people. The first pays tribute to the late Al Robles, a poet whose warm and magnificent spirit has touched my life personally, and the second is an homage to the late Chris Iijima, a musician/teacher whose songs held a beauty and humanity I constantly look to for inspiration and guidance.
