    Dispatch from SFIAAFF: No Child Left Behind and Alternative Distribution Policies

    By way of serendipity and effort, the programming at the 27th San Francisco International Asian American Film Festival (March 12-22), remains resilient to the star-studded vehicles that herald every other festival's existence in town, promoting instead an exquisite array of films that confront our uncertain (economic) future with equal amounts of tenderness and indifference. The festival, one of the larger productions among the Bay Area's own film circuit, has grown noticeably throughout the years, catering to its core Asian American community, while expanding its reach to a broader demographic. This last weekend's slew of sold-out shows ha...

    SXSW Snapshot: Kristian Fraga's "Severe Clear"

    Kristian Fraga's "Severe Clear" breaks free of the "Iraq war movie" stigma by remaining essentially apolitical. The movie exclusively relies on cheap camcorder footage shot by U.S. soldier Mike Scotti during the U.S. invasion of Iraq in 2003, offering a fascinatingly intimate look at the fraternization and search for adventure shared by many members of the military. Because "Severe Clear" takes place five years in the past and doesn't compare the state of the war to its current chaos, the movie contains on a timeless feel. It takes the focus off this specific incursion and emphasizes character motives, universal morality issues, and the two-w...
