Ko-Ni-Chi-Wa - Short Film

A story about a young Asian Canadian woman who becomes familiar with the patterns of "Asiaphiles" who seemingly prey on polite, docile female exchange students. Sophia wonders what it would be like to be a different kind of Asian girl, one who isn't privy to saying "no" when a man advances. Adorning herself in fashion she finds typical of an ESL student, Sophia goes fishing for an Asiaphile. Her ruse attracts 38 year-old Burt, a socially-awkward single white male. Their encounter leads to his gaudy apartment overrun with Oriental paraphernalia, where their true selves are forced to light. Winner of the 2010 "Mighty Asian Moviemaking" contest. Official selection for the 2010 Vancouver Asian Film Festival. Directed by Leanne Yu Produced and shot by Jonas Salzberg runtime: 8 mins.

9-Man: a Streetball Battle in the Heart of Chinatown

“an absorbing documentary” -Neil Genzlinger, The New York Times For 80 years, Chinese American men have played an isolated and unique streetball game on the hot and dirty asphalt of Chinatowns across the USA and Canada. 9-MAN uncovers a community, largely undiscovered by the mainstream, centered around a sport that is a gritty, athletic, chaotic urban treasure traditionally played in parking lots and back alleys. Through a season of nine-man, culminating with a bragging-rights championship battle, the film tells the story of a nine-man tournament that grew in the 1930’s, at a time when anti-Chinese sentiment and racist laws forced restaurant workers and laundrymen to socialize exclusively amongst themselves and explores the greater history of the Chinese American experience. Today nine-man is a lasting connection to Chinatown for a dynamic community of men who know a different, more integrated world, but still fight to maintain autonomy and tradition and defend the game's controversial exclusionary rules. Featuring US Olympian Kevin Wong, a 91-year-old Purple Heart WII veteran, and a cast of colorful characters, 9-MAN is a unique and touching portrait of Chinatown. “a lively, layered debut documentary” -Peter Keough, The Boston Globe “a carefully crafted and enlightening account of a community within a community” -Ken Leung, actor (Lost, The Nightshift) “gripping, compelling” -Donnie Kwak, Complex “9-Man is a surprisingly funny, sharp and nuanced conversation about contemporary Asian Americana.” -Jenn Fang, Reappropriate WINNER: Documentary Feature Competition, CAAMFest WINNER: Directors' Choice Award, Seattle Asian American Film Festival WINNER: Audience Award, Boston Asian American Film Festival WINNER: Grand Jury Award, Austin Asian American Film Festival WINNER: Special Jury Prize: Best Director, Los Angeles Asian Pacific FF WINNER: Audience Award, Los Angeles Asian Pacific Film Festival NOTE: If you purchase the film, we will send you deleted scenes and extended interviews.

Horror Stories

Horror anthologies might be everywhere these days, but the Korean entry Horror Stories raises the bar with four terrifying stories (and a nail-biting wraparound tale), each one chilling enough to be its own feature. If you thought this was going to be a tame collection of teen-friendly “ghost girl” stories – think again. Horror Stories goes right for the jugular with non-stop splatter, intense shocks and riveting suspense. A high school girl is abducted and forced by a psycho to tell him the scariest tales she knows. “Don’t Answer the Door” finds a little brother and sister home alone at night and under siege. “Endless Flight” has a serial killer escaping police custody in the middle of an otherwise empty flight. “Secret Recipe” serves up a wildly macabre fairy tale about two jealous stepsisters who take plastic surgery to nightmarish extremes. “Ambulance on the Death Zone” is a claustrophobic zombie shocker with a paramedic and a mother at a standoff over her possibly infected young daughter. An international genre festival success from Sitges to Fantasia, this is one of the best Korean horror films in years and has been called “one of the scariest Asian horror anthologies of the 21st century” (horror-movies.ca). 2012 / Korean with English subtitles


19. TO BRING THE CHANGE | Mother's Society | Tintale Village, Nepal

TO BRING THE CHANGE | Mother's Society | Tintale Village, Nepal

Nepal is struggling to contain human trafficking. Trafficking laws routinely go unenforced, Nepali women and children are being coerced into the sex and construction industries. Demand for cheap labour in the destination countries is a major driving force, it's also believed that lack of employment in Nepal and political instability since the end of the civil war nine years ago are equally responsible. Low levels of education and awareness of women's issues also play a significant role. NGO's estimate over 12,000 girls each year are trafficked across the border where they are sold into Indian brothels and forced to become prostitutes. It's reported these girls are as young as 7 years old and as old as 24 years old. The women in the Mother's Society in Tintale Village have banded together to protect their own daughters. In the film TO BRING THE CHANGE, PFCF administrator Shyam Basnet discusses a number of the challenges women and girls face each day. Dedicated members of the Mother's Society travel the region to introduce issues of human trafficking, gender equality, and women’s rights with a focus on social justice - through the creative use of song, dance and dramatic reenactments. They are working towards social and economic empowerment of women and children. Because of this vital effort, many women in the region are now capable of raising their voice, more girls are attending school, and women are becoming more independent economically. The Playing For Change Foundation thanks the brave women, girls and men representing the Mother's Society, administrators Shyam Basnet and Ishor Bajracharya and ambassadors Josh Korb and Grace Edmunds. It's up to all of us who care, William Aura | Director of PFCF Asian Music Programs Learn more about the Mother’s Society and their life-saving work: http://playingforchange.org/programs/detail/tintale_village_mothers_society
