I’m in the Mood for Love (2011)

The Vancouver Queer Film Festival this year runs August 14-24 and as a lead-up to that, I thought I would remember a film I enjoyed there a while back. I first met Jason Karman at the 2010 festival through film-makers Cal Garingan and Quentin Lee. In 2011, I had the pleasure of seeing his drama […]

MAMM – The Anti-versary

In August 2011, Aaron Au of Titlecard Pictures and Kevin Li of Little Ram Media teamed up to take on the Mighty Asian Moviemaking Marathon (MAMM). They won. Although they could have used 10 days, Au and Li only needed 4 to create their script (which was built around their assigned topic “anniversaries”), recruit actors, […]

Role Models-Janelle Monáe

“Don’t dim your light–for anybody.” – Erykah Badu to Janelle Monáe | Janelle Monáe is an interview delight. Calm, cool, and congenial, she always seems to have the best response to any question. Her style is chic. She is electric on stage. She is an inventive multi-talented artist who thinks outside the box. Not only […]

MAMM – Papergirl

The Might Asian Movie Making Marathon (MAMM) is the Vancouver Asian Film Festival’s (VAFF) short film contest held every August.

Javin Lau-Time Lapse-Toronto/Hong Kong

Javin Lau is a master of the time lapse. He captures the vibrancy of Toronto and Hong Kong with breathtaking shots. He has chosen his soundtracks perfectly and takes the beauty and splendor of these two metropolises to a whole new level. The titles “TORONTO IS HOME” and “HONG KONG IS HOME” are relevant to […]

Neymar

There are two personalities I follow in today’s football: Neymar and Mario Balotelli. Balotelli for his skills and social significance as an ethnic minority success story in Italy; Neymar for his skills, facial expressions, and the leadership story surrounding him this year as he fronts a Brazil team hosting the World Cup and although is […]

(Super) Mario Balotelli

(Super) Mario Balotelli

In August 2013, I was in the library and came upon an issue of Sports Illustrated with an intriguing cover. It had a man with arms stretched out. That’s not the interesting part. Below said arms were two columns of carefully placed and carefully worded phrases: He is Italian/He is African. The face of AC […]

Your Kontinent Festival – Fly Me to Minami (2013)

The Your Kontinent Film & Media Arts Festival (July 17-26, 2014) in Richmond is one of my favorite times of the year. I admire its willingness to experiment and go beyond the typical format of watching the film and — the end. Your Kontinent is a multimedia experience that brings together artists of all kinds […]
