Now in its 11th year, the Asian American Film Festival's "Slant: Bold Asian American Images" calls on curator Melissa Hung to assemble an eclectic lineup of films — from a mockumentary to sci-fi — representing new works by Asian American filmmakers. 

This screening includes:

Jaime Lo, small and shy by Lillian Chan

Fatakra by Soham Mehta
Naveen left India to chase his dreams in America. Three years and a recession later, his wife and son join him. Sparks fly as a family reunites.

PIA by Tanuj Chopra
In San Francisco in the year 2063, much of human labor has been replaced with service androids called PIAs. One night, a mysterious and malfunctioning PIA appears at Syama Raval's front door.

Digital Antiquities by J.P. Chan
In the year 2036, a woman in an antique electronics shop meets a desperate young man seeking to recover data from an old CD.

Asian American Jesus by Yasmine Gomez
In this mockumentary, performer Samantha Chanse plays six different characters, including Truth is Real — a self-professed "mad scientist of the spoken word," and the subject of college freshman Suzette Law's final project for her ethnic studies class.
