Goh Nakamura’s Surrogate Valentine

Man, it just feels like yesterday when we mentioned that our buddy Goh Nakamura had his music video “Embarcadero Blues” reach one million views on YouTube. (Okay, it’s been three years, but who’s counting?) One self-released album later and it looks like Goh is ready to show off his new project: an indie film called Surrogate Valentine — yes, it’s based off of one of his songs — directed by Dave Boyle where he plays a struggling indie musician named, aptly, Goh Nakamura. (For those not quite comfortable: it’s totally okay in indie movie world to have characters with the same name as yours, yet have the movie not be a documentary.)

The movie made its debut at the SXSW Film Festival in Austin to great reviews, and will make its San Francisco debut as the San Francisco International Asian American Film Festival tomorrow and this Sunday, with performances by Goh before the screening. (And if you’re going to the Sunday showing, track me down and say hi!)

Thanks for rating this! Now tell the world how you feel - .
