Go Check Out: the Asian American International Film Festival. It runs July 24th through August 3rd and is a chance to see films from and about cultures as diverse as Nepal, Taiwan and even North Korea. You can find information on ordering tickets here.
Looking Forward: to one of my favorite directors, Ava DuVernay (Middle of Nowhere, Venus Vs), directing Selma, about Martin Luther King’s historic voting rights campaign. David Oyelowo is set to play King.
