Buzzing with nail-biting suspense and clever humor, Chinese filmmaker Li Yuhe’s feature debut portrays a puzzling crime that happens in a rural small town, where greed, lust and wit battle it out in one night. It all starts with a sexually impotent motel owner who hires a pro to murder his cheating wife. Everything goes exactly as planned until two blind daters, a robber, a policeman, and a dead body unexpectedly arrive. Confident, informed and effortless, Absurd Accident  welcomes the audience to a new chapter in the Chinese indie film scene.

The Asian American International Film Festival (AAIFF) premiered in the summer of 1978 in New York City answering a growing need for social understanding, cultural diversity in American life, and independent cinema. AAIFF is the first festival in the U.S. to showcase film and video work by artists of the Asian Diaspora. Forty years later, the AAIFF has grown to include films and video from more than 30 countries, a variety of topical panels and workshops, industry mixers, staged readings, exclusive interviews, receptions and more.

Presented with Asian CineVision, Cinema Village, and Flushing Town Hall.
