A special program of Asian Canadian short films with Toronto filmmaker, Victoria native, Carolyn Wong.
She'll present her film Howard (18 min, 2012) which won Best Canadian Short in the Vancouver Asian Film Festival 2013. An estranged uncle is murdered. The niece he never knew uncovers his complex, conflicted life as a gay man and muses about his life and death in an attempt to comprehend what it means to her.
Plus her Beat Truths (3 min, 2004) about a Toronto bucket drummer.
Also, watch the video State of Yo (9 min, 2007) by Jason Karman about Harvey Lowe (incidentally Carolyn Wong's Great Uncle!) who won the world's first Yo-Yo championship in 1932.
Others: a drama by Jason Karman, Kimchi Fried Dumplings (14 min, 2012) and a MM favourite, Kimchi According to my Kun-Umma! (18 min, 2002) by Samuel Kiehoon Lee - fun, family, and food are the focus of this charming and informative look into Korean culture. Printable event poster
