Along with so much of the good stuff going on that you might want to check out at the San Francisco International Asian American Film Festival this month, here’s a plug for the movie “White on Rice”. Friend of Nakayoshi Tim Koide worked on some of the music in the score of the film, and has let us in on a reception prior to the screening at the festival where you’ll get a chance to meet director Dave Boyle and some of the cast as well! Speaking of the SFIAAFF, have you guys signed up to volunteer with Nakayoshi yet?
Here’s a little on the film:
White on Rice takes a comedic look at a Japanese immigrant family coming to terms with romance, parenting and middle age as they adjust to American culture. Director Dave Boyleâ€™s second feature stars Hiroshi Watanabe (Clint Eastwoodâ€™s Letters from Iwo Jima), Japanese pop singer Nae, and James Kyson Lee (Heroes).
