boston asian american film festival, november 11-14

Hey, Boston! This week, if you like Asian American films, then you better get yourself out to the Boston Asian American Film Festival, presented by the Asian American Resource Workshop. They've got another thought-provoking, entertaining lineup of screenings and events. It's happening November 11-14 at five venues around Boston.

Things kick off this Thursday with the Opening Night screening of the independent "foodie comedy" Today's Special, directed by David Kaplan, and written by and starring Aasif Mandvi. That's November 11, 7:30 at the Stuart Street Playhouse. Should be fun.

The festival continues throughout the weekend with a number of screenings, including Mike Cheng and Ben Wang's bio-documentary AOKI, Quentin Lee's indie sex comedy The People I've Slept With, the family drama The Things We Carry, a shorts program, and a workshop with Grand Torino actor Bee Vang.
