The SF dragon boat race happened last week in Treasure Island, its interesting that it's held during the chinese mid autumn festival... so they were also having the chinese mid autumn street fair in chinatown on the same day...
"It is very difficult to survive in this world if you have a strong will, but then if you don't have a strong will, life would be quite pointless."
read it somewhere, It sounds contradictory but yet so true... also remind me of a dialogue in shaolin soccer, "做人如果無夢想﹐同條咸魚有乜分別?" ..
So the berkeley art center's small film festival happened last weekend, and as expected, it's a smaller scale fest, say, compared to the full house 3min. film fest last month in the Mission area.
It is more like a local event for artist and people living in the community, which is in fact quite an interesting experience. Since it was held at an art center, the discussion atmosphere was actually more serious and engaging than few of the recent fests i attended before.

saw the film yesterday, it's more or less expected, basically it wants to convey a simple point: we have a broken healthcare system and a lot of people are suffering.
just like what most moore's films are, it is like a one-sided story, and we are exposed all the bad things about the system in US, and all the good things about other countries like england, france, canada and even cuba, that are providing universal healthcare to everyone, including some americans going to cuba for treatment. is it a good film the...Read more

Just got the news that my short film "Thereafter" got into Berkeley Art Center's Small Film Festival. Feeling great about it since it is the first time "Thereafter" is showing in our hometown!

I just uploaded some screen cap of my latest short "dedicated to". Feel free to check it out.
As I said, it is a short I made for the Root Division's 3 mins. film fest. It is basically a last minute effort and one man band, I am the director/writer/cinematographer/editor/actor and my friends helped with the music.
It was a fun experiment and also my little tribute to the late Michelangelo Antonioni and a dedication to someone.
There is basically no narrative and a rough synops...Read more
