shanghai kiss screening in nyc

For those of you in New York, here's an opportunity to check out a special screening of Kern Konwiser and David Ren's Shanghai Kiss, presented by the Museum of Chinese in the Americas, and co-sponsored by Fallout Central, ImaginAsian Entertainment, Asian/Pacific/American Institute at NYU and Asian CineVision. Monday, October 1st, 7:30pm at the Imaginasian Theater. Here's the story:
Liam Liu ( Ken Leung, HBO's THE SOPRANOS) is a likeable, struggling L.A. actor who inadvertently finds himself as the object of affection for a pretty Beverly Hills teen (Hayden Panettiere, NBC's HEROES). When Liam inherits his grandmother’s home in Shanghai, his visit to China and introduction to Micky (Kelly Hu, THE SCORPION KING, XMEN 2)--a woman who captures his imagination like no other—force him to reconsider his Chinese roots. Caught between two worlds (and two women), Liam must now sort out the complicated desires of his heart, and find out who he really is.
View the trailer here. The screening will be followed by a Q&A with writer/co-director David Ren. All tickets are $10.
