25th sfiaaff: closing night


The week has flown by... tonight is Closing Night of the 25th San Francisco International Asian American Film Festival, with the screening of Dark Matter, followed by a reception and awards ceremony at the Palace of Fine Arts. Dark Matter the debut film from renowned New York-based Chinese opera director Chen Shi-Zheng, based on the true story of a talented Chinese physics student whose strained psyche begins to unravel in the face of miscommunication and school politics. At least, that's what I think it's about. I missed this one at Sundance, but it's sounds like a doozy. (And oh yeah, it stars Meryl Streep.) I don't think things end well. But hey, it's Closing Night, and that's always fun. For those of you in the South Bay (represent!), the San Jose portion of the festival begins tomorrow...
