CUNY AAARI (25 w 43rd 18th floor)
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 info@asiancinevision.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

Report on the Woodstock in the City screening of “Mister Green”

The fine folks at TheFilmPanelNoteTaker.com have posted a report on the Woodstock in the City screening of “Mister Green” and other Futurestates shorts. An excerpt:

Pak said he began outlining the story for Mister Green in 2008 during the election. With talk of “change in the air,” he found himself thinking how hard change really is, and that nobody wants to really change on a personal level or in any way at all. To him, the idea of fundamental change is something we’re inevitably going to have to face within the next generation, and science fiction is a safe place to try out different ideas about what real change might entail. This was a chance for him to take this notion to the biggest extreme he could build around the topic of climate change and global warming. People have given him different reactions on his film. One friend told him that he found it to be really optimistic, while someone else said it was a horrifying vision of the future.
