Today is the day! The 11th Annual Slant: Bold Asian American Images Festival screens tonight at the River Oaks Theatre. Filmmaker Soham Mehta and curator Melissa Hung will be in attendance.
This annual Aurora program showcases an eclectic mix of the best new short films made by Asian American artists. From a mockumentary that follows a self-important spoken word artist to a sci-fi tale featuring a malfunctioning android, the five short films selected for Slant tell diverse stories. Curated by Melissa Hung, founding editor of Hyphen, Slant will screen for one night only. Don’t miss it!
