SDAFF says, "Hi," to Seattle International Film Fest

Our Associate Director Mye Hoang and I made it up for the weekend to Seattle and got a taste of (more like a mouthful) the city and its resident month-long film festival. Unfortunately the film I truly wanted to cancelled due to an issue between the film distributor and Technicolor! Thus, I spent alot of time checking out sights and stuffing my face with wonderful foods in the Pike Place Market! Yum.

Either way, Mye and I did manage to see a wonderful new film that we will hopefully show down here in October. "Forever Enthralled," tells the biographical story of Mei Lanfang, China's greatest opera singer. Directed by Chen Kaige and starring Leon Lai, this is a well created period drama that will fascinate you with its dedication and perspective on the life of one man and the thousands of people whom he affected. Here is the official trailer, unfortunately there isn't one in English!


  1. That's so cool! You can add it to your Netflix queue, even though there is so release date for the DVD yet...
