DC Asian Pacific American Film is screening all year long!
Yes, as part of our shiny new collaboration with Sulu DC (www.suludc.com), our best buddies and local partners-in-crime in the Asian-American arts community, DC APA Film will regularly bring the best in Asian-American cinema to select monthly Sulu DC shows during the year at the brand new Artisphere in Rosslyn, Va…. and we couldn’t be happier about it!
Sulu DC assembles a grassroots community of the best emerging and established, local and national Asian-American artists that includes: spoken word poets, musicians, comedians, songwriters, authors, playwrights, and dancers (whew!).
These artists are regularly featured in one supreme live performance showcase at the Dome Theater of Rosslyn’s recently-opened Artisphere museum on the third Saturday of every month. (Check out the Sulu DC promo video at this link!) Now you can add the best filmmakers to that list courtesy of your friendly neighborhood Asian-American film nonprofit, DC APA Film. Future participation by DC APA Film in Sulu DC shows will include film screenings, filmmaker appearances, live interviews, Q & A’s, and much, much more!
Mark your calendars because the collaboration officially begins on Saturday, March 19 at 7 p.m.! Together with community partner NAPAWF-DC (National Asian Pacific American Women’s Forum – DC; www.napawf.org), Sulu DC and DC APA Film present: “Herstory: The Lives of Fierce AAPI Women” in honor of Women’s History Month. This showcase will explore and celebrate the fabulous Asian-American female experience through performances by Sulu co-founder Simone Jacobson, spoken word artists Gowri K. and Robin Suhyung Park, dancer Sui Lang Panoke, DJ The Pinstriped Rebel … and, of course, short films from DC APA Film including Susan Chien’s “Southern Exposure,” Naomi K. Ward’s “The 8 ½ Minute Biracial Biography of Bianca Smith,” and more!
Tickets are only $10 ($8 for students) and available at tickets.artisphere.com or at the door.
See you there for this historic night!
