24th los angeles asian pacific film festival: closing night

All right. It's been a good week at the 24th Los Angeles Asian Pacific Film Festival. It's been a whirlwind, but I've seen a lot of great films, and hung out with some very cool people. I got to see stuff like Yung Chang's Up the Yangtze, Ron Morales' Santa Mesa, and Amyn Kaderali's Kissing Cousins, as well as a whole bunch of short films. Wonderful stuff, all around.

Things wrap up tonight with the Closing Night presentation of Tony Ayres' The Home Song Stories, starring Joan Chen (and you know how much I love Joan Chen). The evening's festivities include the film, presentation of the festival's awards, and a big fun party. Come on out, bring your friends, and support Asian American cinema. Well, I guess in this case, it's Asian Australian cinema. Either way, it's Joan Chen, and I can dig it.
