documentary world premiere: 1040

I recently heard about a new documentary, 1040, produced by a bunch of friends of mine... Directed by Evan Jackson Leong, produced by Anson Ho and Carl Choi, and featuring Jaeson Ma, Jin the MC, Van Ness Wu, Mike Bickle and MC Hammer, the film is described as a journey through the "spiritual landscape" of Asia:
1040 is an explosive documentary that focuses on the rapid changes in Asia and the significant shift of spiritual landscape in the area known as the "10/40 Window" - the regions between 10 degrees and 40 degrees North Latitude on the eastern hemisphere. In the film, artist and minister Jaeson Ma takes us on an exciting journey through the Asian countries in the window, showing us the dramatic changes happening on the ground. We visit China, South Korea, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Singapore, and Indonesia. Through incisive observations, intimate interviews with prominent leaders and celebrities, and powerful, never-before-heard stories, 1040 dynamically explores a part of our globe that is experiencing vast socioeconomic expansion and profound shift in identity - it is an area that is now nothing less than the frontier of world Christianity.
The film is making its world premiere as the official Opening Night Film of the 2010 City of the Angels Film Festival this Friday, March 12 at the Director Guild of America in Los Angeles. Here are the screening details:
