The Chinese American Film Festival returns to Crowell Public Library on Thursday, November 15 at 6:00 pm with a program of six short subjects: Kimchi Taco: a Korean shopkeeper, traumatized by the brutal murder of her husband in Spanish Harlem, finds an unexpected ally in a young Mexican woman with a secret. Esperanza - an undocumented nanny's American dream turns into a nightmare when she's given six hours to raise two thousand dollars or else a coyote will sell her child to the highest bidder. Please Translate explores how language divides but eventually bridges the relationship between a mother and daughter. In a film about sacrifice, hardships and ultimately a mother's love, the daughter comes to realize how special their bond truly is. Care and Cure is a film that explores traditional Chinese medicine in the United States through the lens of an American alternative medicine practitioner. Ruth McCarty provides life-changing care for children facing difficult diagnoses, as she struggles to find a place for her practice within the world of Western medicine. Gaps: although this documentary focuses on Alzheimer’s, the themes of family, stigma, and awareness apply to many aspects of Asian culture and the growing tension between Asian Americans and their immigrant parents. Little Princess follows Wang Lu, the keeper of the Snow Leopard Pavilion, and her relationship with the Snow Leopards she looks after. We see how understanding and caring for animals is the first step towards saving them.

Then on Monday, November 19th at 6:00 pm, the feature film The Farewell Girls will screen: Shanshan, Gong, and Leo, have been persistently chasing their music dream as a band, but they kept failing in talent shows until they meet the owner of a funeral service company. The girls gradually realized the real meaning of death and together they started taking funeral singing seriously.

Chinese American Film Festival (CAFF) was founded in 2005 by EDI Media Inc. (USA). It is the most authoritative and influential annual Chinese American cultural event connecting two of world’s largest film markets. Every year in November CAFF hosts its Opening Ceremony and Golden Angel Award in Hollywood, the entertainment capital of the world. Hundreds of top box office films from China and the US participate in CAFF, of which the Top 10 are selected and awarded with the Golden Angel, named after the city of Los Angeles. CAFF is the only Chinese American cultural event in the United States that is officially recognized by both the U.S. and Chinese governments. During the month of November, CAFF showcases over 700 feature films in over 20 screening locations in Hollywood, Los Angeles, San Francisco and other cities, with over 2,300 total number of screenings.
