Asian American International Film Festival: Last SunriseVIEW EVENT DETAILS
Part of the 42nd Asian American International Film Festival
Presented by Asian CineVision in association with Asia Society
Dir. Wen Ren. 104 mins. DCP.
A future reliant on solar energy falls into chaos after the sun disappears, forcing a reclusive astronomer and his bubbly neighbor out of the city. As the temperature goes subzero, oxygen depletes, and the only hope is a miracle at their final destination, District Four. Akin to the orphan planet earth, they gravitate forward in search of light in the perpetual darkness.
Followed by a Q&A.
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.
