SYNOPSIS Tre arrives unannounced at a secluded mountain home where his friends Gabe and Kakela allow him to crash on their couch. But Kakela becomes increasingly annoyed with Tre when he begins a revenge-fueled sexual affair with her best friend, Nina. As Kakela watches Nina's marriage unravel, she begins to question her devotion to Gabe. Unsure of her motives, she accepts a dare devised by Tre -- a simple 10-second experiment that changes her life forever.
Sexual competition and moral ambiguity are the only constants in Eric Byler's searing follow-up to his critically acclaimed 2003 Independent Spirit Award nominated film, "Charlotte Sometimes," the sexy anti-romance celebrated by film critic Roger Ebert as a "breakthrough for Asian American cinema."
"The all-Asian cast I chose for "Charlotte Sometimes" confused some viewers because they had come to expect an overt political commentary when confronted with ethnic faces in American films. My follow-up "Tre" feature mixed Asian (“hapa”) romantic leads and also ignores ethnicity, favoring humanity as its focus and theme. At its core, "Tre" is an exploration of how the idea of love, and our near religious faith in it, can lead us to make promises we don't intend to keep, to covet what is not ours, and to submit to impulses and compulsions we may spend the rest of our lives regretting. This can be true for an Asian American, a half Asian, or any person for that matter. In a sense, "Tre" reasserts the right of ethnic artists to tell stories about our communities without focusing on the issue of race…without political agenda. You might say that claiming this right is an artistic agenda with political implications." —Eric Byler Jan. 2008
“Tre” was co-written by Byler and lead actress Kimberly-Rose Wolter (Charlotte Sometimes) also starring Daniel Cariaga, Alix Koromzay and Erik McDowell. Winner of the Special Jury Award at the San Francisco International Film Festival.

Aloha all and Hau`oli Makahiki Hou Wanted to give everyone lots of notice on the upcoming opening of my film TRE, directed by fellow AnD member Eric Byler. TRE is opening February 1st at the Lemmele Sunset 5, with a rockin party to follow. I'll have more details as the date gets closer. But please mark the date or weekend. It is a very intriguing story peering into the inner guts of relationships and love. Hope you can make it! Mahalo! Kim
This year don't just go to the mall and buy a present, instead spend a few more minutes to research a gift that benefits someone besides big business.
A few examples I can offer are: Jewerly by Janelle Gibson, who has partnered with FreshWater Haven to raise funds to bring awareness to the abuse of woman and children in Zimbabwe. Visit http://savehope.blogspot.com to learn more and purchase the pendants in time for the holidays for you and loved ones. Your purchase can help end abuse in Zimbabwe and other countries, while bringing more attention by helping Tapestries of Hope, an impactful documentary focusing on the issue of rape and abuse in Zimbabwe. It also showcases the story of Betty Makoni and her organization Girl Child Network which has helped over 25,000 victims live a better life and away from rape.
Another good place to shop is with Unicef as well as Heffer and check out mikiala.com 10% of all sales go to help the woman in Darfur by receiving solar cookers. An item that can literally save lives there.
So this holiday don't just gift well, gift smart!! Mele Kalikimaka!! Kim
Hey Everyone! It is that time again, Christmas is upon us and that means being with family and enjoying good meals.

If you are in the Los Angeles area VS. Theatre Company is here to help with our Holiday Boutique.
We have hand selected a variety of vendors to give you an opportunity to buy quality gifts in a mellow relaxed environment.

I have to tell you, I'm not huge into birthdays. Not someone who needs a bash every year or expects something wonderful the day of, thinking that day is a microcosm of the year to come. I don't like planning parties, which is one of the reasons I'l never get married ( a total different discussion) and am not that big into the clubs. However I do love good friends! And this year I was so surprised when my best friends independent of one another decided to come to LA and celebrate my birthday with me. In this world which moves at light speed, in a city that is hoped up on uber-light speed it was a celebration of things that cannot be accomplished by making heaps of money or being the most famous or most attractive. It was a celebration of being together and enjoying time. Something that seems so hard to come by these days. My girlfriends are spread out, one is in Hawaii, one in Half Moon Bay, one is all over the place but usually I can find her in Silverlake and one lives off the laundry room. No matter how far or how close these ladies are, they are always available at the right time. I don' t want to say "when I need them most" since that implies we are there for each other in desperate times and then function in the margins till the shit goes down ( and I have friends like that too) but these are the best friends, the ones you call because something embarrassing happened and you need to tell someone, or because you need to laugh, or cry or just vent. They are part of the reason I work hard, so I can then make time to see them and enjoy life and play. These woman make up a part of who I am and I want to say thank-you! And I love you!
If you haven't guessed I'm a Hapa Girl from Hawai'i. Happy to be part of the Alive Not Dead community cause it means I'm ALIVE and that's always a stellar thing to be. I'm a multi-tasker and have a few different projects travelling through film festivals and soon to be in a theatre near you (if you are in New York or LA). TRE, which is out in theatre early Decemeber 2007 I play Kakela, a woman who is ready for a change but is not sure what exactly that means to her, all she knows is the status quo is not working. I co-wrote TRE with director Eric Byler. In SHOOT MY LIFE, I wear even more hats as writer, director, actress and producer, this I don't recommend! Though it was a blast to shoot and I think that shows on screen. So stay tuned...
