In collaboration with the National Film Board Theatre, Festival Accès Asie is proud to present film screenings of two Asian filmmakers who are proud of their heritage. As part of a documentary series Resaturants chinois, Passions Latines tells the story of the Chinese diaspora through its most recognizable and enduring icon - the family-run Chinese restaurant. Filmmaker Cheuk Kwan visits Latin American cities of Lima, Sao Paulo and Buenos Aires encountering restaurant owners enthralled in their passion for cooking, soccer and tango.
The feature length comedy, Yellow Fellas by Tetsuro Shigematsu, follows Howie Hiroshima, a young Asian male tired of racism who decides to create a secret group of militant Asian men who are anxious to get their revenge against the society who has emasculated their identity. Original and smart, this film pokes fun at the media stereotypes of Asian men.
