The Gene Siskel Film Center and the Foundation for Asian American Independent Media (FAAIM) present the 16th edition of Asian American Showcase, April 1 through 14. The festival opens with an excellent indie feature, Surrogate Valentine.
Actress Lynn Chen, who we recently interviewed, plays the love interest of the main character.
Actor/musician Goh Nakamura & director David Boyle will be present. Light refreshments and music will accompany the Gallery opening of SEXY a group show featuring works by artists tantalizing the mind, beguiling senses and teasing to hint at something suggestive or provocative from a decidedly Asian American perspective.
