Product Placement and Love – Friday, October 8, 2004 - 8:15 pm

Heavy on humor and sass, this selection of short films traces the aspirations of everyday people—and the shadows of the expectations they place on themselves and the assumptions that society has for them. As the characters in these films find themselves faced with feats of strength in intellect, confidence, and self-respect, they rise to the challenge, proving that in life, love, or basketball, it’s not whether you win or lose, but how you play the game.
Filmmakers Karen Lin, Jimmy Tsai and Vincent Tsu will be in attendance.
