Award-winning filmmaker Greg Pak (Robot Stories, AAIFF03; Mister Green, AAIFF10) returns to the AAIFF’s annual Work-in-Progress Workshop. Pak will guide filmmakers through the process of molding an unfinished work into its final cut. Featured works include “Maria the Korean Bride” by Maria Yoon and “Love Arranged” by Soniya Kirpalani. These two films explore questions of marriage from intriguingly different angles. This event is organized as part of the Media Coalition for Artists of Color Networking Salon. This workshop is free. RSVPs should be made to firstname.lastname@example.org.
“Maria the Korean Bride” chronicles one Asian-American woman’s quest to marry in all fifty states in an effort to explore contemporary American martial customs in the context of her traditional Asian upbringing. For more: www.mariathekoreanbride.com
“Love Arranged” follows two educated, urbane Indian women who are actually actively seeking out “arranged matches,” despite having other options. For more: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F0xORXgjLJg
