Los Angeles Asian Pacific Film Festival: Program 48 - Digital Histories 2010

The Film Festival is pleased to present the sixth edition of this groundbreaking project of Visual Communications and Little Tokyo’s DISKovery Center. The perspectives of our elder media artists might lack the technical polish of some big-budget blockbusters, but their works speak far more eloquently than anything playing in the local multiplexes.
— Steven Wong, Brian Tsukamoto
