Director: Eliaichi Kimaro
82 minutes (2011)
Feature Film
Eliaichi Kimaro is a mixed-race, first-generation American with a Tanzanian father and Korean mother. When her retired father moves back to Tanzania, Eliaichi begins a project that evocatively examines the intricate fabric of multiracial identity, and grapples with the complex ties that children have to the cultures of their parents. A LOT LIKE YOU won Best Documentary at the San Francisco International Asian American Film Festival and Top 10 Audience Choice Award at SIFF.

Directors: Martin Tran & Daniel Strothman
4 minutes (2012)
Short Film
Inspired by the music of the Blue Scholars. Even after the popcorn is finished and the lights come back on, do we ever really leave the cinema? A finalist in the Blue Scholars Short Film Competition, CINEMETROPOLIS is a love letter to the movies, hip hop, Seattle, and our childhood imagination.

Director: Yuji Okumoto
10 minutes (2011)
Short Film
After a fifteen-year stretch in prison, JC Lee realizes that there are no joyful reunions awaiting him. While trying to reconnect with his long estranged son, Troy, JC discovers that life doesn't get any easier when he is out. OUT was an official selection of SIFF, the Newport Beach Film Festival, Las Vegas Film Festival, and San Diego Asian Film Festival.

Director: Andrew Ahn
12 minutes (2011)
Short Film
Nick is a gay Korean-American man living in Koreatown, Los Angeles with his partner Brian and their dog, Chloe. When Nick attends his baby nephew's "dol," a traditional Korean first birthday party, he finds himself yearning for a life just out of reach. DOL (First Birthday) was an official selection of the Sundance Film Festival.

The discussion panel that follows will feature Eli Kimaro, the director of the opening feature film, A LOT LIKE YOU, Wes Kim, filmmaker and director of SAAFF's predecessor, the Northwest Asian American Film Festival, and LeiLani Nishime, University of Washington Professor of Communication and author of many articles and book chapters on Asian American representation in popular media. They will discuss the films and the ways they explore queerness, mixed race identity and Asian American childhood.

The opening night party immediately follows the films and discussion panel, and will take place in the Wing Luke Reception room next to the Tateuchi Story Theater.
