On May 13th, 2017 NewFilmmakers Los Angeles (NFMLA) celebrates Asian Pacific American Heritage Month with a special installment of the InFocus series, InFocus: Asian Cinema. The first program in the evening line-up features 6 short films from emerging Asian filmmakers, both local and international. These voices bring us tales ranging from a family affected by nuclear warfare to a pair of stoners seeking to make their name in Hollywood. This Asian film spotlight promises to take attendees on a comedic, tragic and even nostalgic ride. The second program celebrates the US Premier of the Japanese feature film “Where Florence Sleeps.” From the brother duo of Katsuto and Kenji Kobayashi, experience a dramatic tale of sabotage, kidnapping and ransom. The evening film program closes with the LA Premier of “Looking for Jackalope,” Karl Shefelman’s feature length directorial debut. Throughout the event attendees will have opportunities to mingle with the filmmakers, industry supporters and film lovers over cocktails and beats at the filmmakers’ lounge adjacent to the private entry of the South Park Center’s 500 seat theater in Downtown Los Angeles.
