01-02-2019 12:00:00 03-02-2019 12:00:00 America/New_York The 1st New York Asian Film Festival Winter Showcase | Time Varies For the inaugural edition of the New York Asian Film Festival Winter Showcase, NYAFF has chosen a very timely theme. Everyone's talking about Crazy Rich Asians, but what about the other side of the tracks? The showcase offers an alternate perspective on the continent with films that range from pure entertainment to profound introspection, stories about the 99% and the extraordinary lives of ordinary people, which might be from halfway across the world but are more relevant than ever in our troubled times. A deeply moving epic of despair, raw tales of the streets, crime thrillers, redemptive boxing dramas, a comic period piece, darkly humorous animation, action extravaganzas; all make up the salient motif we've dubbed "Crazy Broke Asians". Weaving a rich fabric of Asian cinema, the films from years past (including a few NYAFF alumni) deserve fresh eyes, while the premieres hint at much more to come this summer in NYAFF 2019. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=349176 SVA Theatre SVA Theatre
