If you missed out on last week’s screenings of Asian/AA films at Tribeca, you’re still in luck. Several films are playing throughout the rest of this week until the festival’s close on May 2. Here’s part two of what to watch.
Dream Home, April 27, Feature Narrative
Slasher film about real estate? Yup. Audrey It Girl Josie Ho stars as an upwardly mobile professional in Hong Kong dead set on buying the house of her dreams, even if that means driving would-be buyers away with a few well-placed murders.
Tetsuo the Bullet Man, April 27, Feature Narrative
Shinya Tsukamoto’s Tetsuo the Bullet Man is the director’s first English-language film and is the latest follow up to his cult hit Tetsuo the Iron Man, released 20 years ago. This man-meets-machine thriller proves you don’t need fancy computer rendering to deliver a sci-fi hit.
Clash (Bay Rong), April 29, Feature Narrative
Ass-kicking female mercenary Trinh is forced to complete a series of hits in an effort to recover her daughter from the clutches of an evil crime lord in this fast-paced crowd pleaser, the highest-grossing film in Vietnam last year.
In Space (Soonyakat), April 29, Short
Student filmmaker Visra Vichit-Vadakan explores the metaphysical and confronts her own sense of mortality in this short that stars her real-life grandparents.
A Border Story, April 29, Short
A Mexican immigrant looking for a better life in America stumbles upon a lost young boy wandering the desert in Tobias Louie’s short, which the director hopes will be the first in a series of border stories.
Delilah, Before, April 29, Short
This short packs a lot in 10 minutes – a Singaporean woman released from prison confronts her embittered mother over custody of her 2-year-old daughter.
Paju, April 30, Feature Narrative
A man with a tragic past, a mysterious woman with secrets of her own, and a disapproving sibling. It all adds up to a slow-burning romantic drama in director Park Chan-ok’s (Jealousy Is My Middle Name) Paju.
