In a New York Minute
Dir. Ximan Li. 102 mins. DCP.
Three strangers accidentally discover the solution to their problems lies in a single pregnancy test. Amy is haunted by a past breakup that has manifested into an eating disorder. Angel is caught between a loveless marriage to an American businessman and a passionate affair with a Chinese writer. Nina moonlights as an escort in order to support herself.
Based on a Chinese short story, IN A NEW YORK MINUTE takes a slice-of-life look at relationships highlighted by its Asian and Asian American-led cast. First time writer/director Ximan Li leads a female driven production crew to create an intimate character study that interprets love from three different points of view.
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.
