ACF 1068: NYAFF Trailer

The 10th Annual New York Asian Film Festival will start on July 1st and run through the 14th. The lineup is incredible. I've already seen three films at press screenings and will be watching others on DVD screeners before the festival begins. Look for reviews both here and at the VCinema blog, where I'll be posting some contributions, over the next several weeks.

Meanwhile, here's the festival trailer, which will give you an idea of the delights that await those fortunate enough to attend.

Let me just say at this time that the official opening night film Milocrorze: A Love Story is fantastic. It stars Takayuki Yamada in three different roles: a bizarre and manic youth counselor, a young man who falls in love with a flower vendor and somehow becomes a samurai after losing her, and an older version of the seven year old who falls in love with the title character. A great performance that certainly shows him worthy of the 2011 Star Asia Rising Star Award, which he'll be receiving at the festival.
