ONE KINE DAY (United States 2010- Dir./Scr.: Chuck Mitsui)
Sunday, May 1 at 4:00 PM at DGA 1
Over the mountains, hidden from the tourist filled beaches of Waikiki, Ralsto, a 19 year-old Hawaiian skateboarder, wakes up to a day he will never forget. Troubled by the news that his girlfriend, Alea, is pregnant, Ralsto embarks on a journey to raise funds for “da kine” while Alea contemplates the prospect of becoming a teen mother. Desperate for funds to help raise the impending arrival, Ralsto leans on his best friend Nalu, who takes him on a journey into the dark world of cockfights and drug dealing, leaving him penniless at the hands of a man who calls himself Vegas Mike. With no money and no job, Ralsto has to face Alea at the house party of the year.

RED LIGHT REVOLUTION (Australia/China 2010- Dir./Scr.: Sam Voutas)
Wednesday, May 4 at 9:30 PM at CGV Theatre 3
Shunzi, like many men of his generation, is a hard worker who simply can’t afford to provide the type of life his spouse desires. When he is fired for disobedience, his wife promptly leaves him and throws him out of the house he bought her. With nowhere else to go, Shunzi returns to his parent’s traditional courtyard home for solace. As money pressures rise, Shunzi’s parents urge him to forget about ‘face’ and take any job that will have him. So, unbeknownst to his family, Shunzi decides to step behind China’s new ‘red curtain’ and secretly open an adult shop. But when the neighborhood watch discovers that Shunzi has been operating without a permit, Shunzi faces the threat of losing everything.

Other than the two too many joz’s, jozjozjoz is a perfectly normal, relatively sane individual who defies the odds, reaches for the stars, and carries moonbeams home in a jar. She’d rather be a fish… but not in her own dirty fishtank. http://www.jozjozjoz.com
