Slant Film Festival-San Francisco
4 Star Theater and the Aurora Picture Show are proud to present Slant: Bold Asian American Images, an annual film festival screening an eclectic mix of Asian American cinema. Get set for an evening of stereotype-smashing, rollicking off-beat comedies and heart warming and breaking family stories.  

An evening with two screenings.

Screening 1: Children, Young & Grown

Saturday, July 21, 7 pm
4 Star Theatre, 2200 Clement St

$8

Children try to find safety from a harsh world, whether it's the little boy practicing his karate moves in Siu Ta's Kata Practice, or the children in Tze Chun's Windowbreaker, who build traps to protect their home. Vivid imaginations take hold during the summer in Suzi Yoonessi's whimsical Dear Lemon Lima and in Kimi Takesue's The Summer of the Serpent.

Two films also explore the relationships between parents and their grown children. A mother and son take a final journey together in Jae-Ho Chang's The Last Vacation while a movie director confronts his father in Lead Role: Father by PJ Raval.

Slant curator Melissa Hung will be in attendance.

Screening 2: Best of Slant & More!  
Saturday, July 21, 9 pm

4 Star Theatre, 2200 Clement St

$8

GGet ready for some of Slant's greatest hits! In celebration the Best of Slant DVD compilation, this program includes a few audience favorites from past years of the festival.
Wes Kim's Profiles in Science takes a quirky look at one man's unwavering pursuit of scientific knowledge. A pie maker tries to explain himself in Nobu Ailman's faux documentary I Pie (A Love Story) .  Maritess V.S. the Superfriends, an animation by Dino Ignacio, tells the plight of the Superfriends' Filipina maid. And Doan La's comedy Dragon of Love chronicles one man's dating disaster when he meets the woman of his dreams.  

But wait, there's more! This program will also feature Josh Kim's The Police Box, a charming story of romantic crushes; Frank Yeean Chan's cycling adventure Russian Hill Roulette; and Ling Liu's Officer Tsukamoto, a documentary about the unsolved 1970 murder of a police officer.

Filmmakers Frank Yeean Chan, Ling Liu and Dino Ignacio, as well as curator Melissa Hung, will be in attendance.
