Description

Visual Communications, the hottest Asian American multimedia house from L.A. brings its pioneering VC Digital SLAM! The hottest 30 second digital clips around!

In this special showcase program, Abe Ferrer, Visual Communications’ Exhibitions Director, will bring the best of three years worth of innovative thirty-second micro-movies, initially created as part of the organization’s special screening events.

Since 2003, over one hundred predominantly Asian Pacific American cinema artists accepted the challenge of producing thirty-second videos articulating the vast range of API viewpoints and perspectives, from historical pieces to the current anti-war movement, from comedy to high drama to the uniquely personal.

Filmmakers who have accepted the “VC Digital Challenge” comprise both established and emerging talents—the “superstars” of Asian Pacific American cinema as well as the “young turks” of their generation. The list includes Justin Lin, Greg Pak, Robert Nakamura, Rea Tajiri and Tanuj Chopra. Bay Area artists who have participated include Matthew Abaya, Loni Ding, Felicia Lowe, Debbie Lum, Spencer Nakasako, Michael Siv and Valerie Soe.
