Part of the 42nd Asian American International Film Festival
Presented by Asian CineVision in association with Asia Society
Dir. Sasie Sealy. 100 mins. DCP.
Set in New York City's Chinatown, an ornery, chain-smoking Chinese grandma goes all in at the casino, landing herself on the wrong side of luck—and in the middle of a gang war.
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.
