Dir. Shu Lea Cheang. 1994. 80 min. 35mm.
Described by the director as “Eco-Cyber-Noia,” FRESH KILL centers around a non-nuclear family anchored by mothers Claire (Erin McMurtry), Shareen (Sarita Choudhury), and their daughter Honey (Nelini Stamp). A wild ride involving corporate conspiracies, pollution and community activism, Shu Lea Cheang’s debut is a must see.

The 42nd Asian American International Film Festival runs from July 25 to August 3.
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.
