    Posted March 25th, 2013 by Michael in CAAMFest 2013, Memoirs of a Superfan

    Memoirs of a Superfan, Vol. 8.8:  On Our Plate March 25, 2013 Soon to be festless and restless, I journeyed to J-town and KQED for the last few events of an incredible CAAMFest experience.  The movies, as usual, have been profound – entertaining, gritty, artful, inspirational and moving.  Each year brings me to a deeper place.  It’s a trueing […]

      Even before Erika Menendez allegedly pushed Sunando Sen to his death in the New York Subway in December, 2012, I have avoided the platform edge.  I’ve been aware of the aggression of a segment of America, meting out hateful “retaliation” for 9-11.  Brown skin might as well have been tattooed with the target symbol, targeted by fearful-angry-judgmental […]

    Memoirs of a Superfan Vol. 8.4: Dead Dads are Here to Stay

    Posted March 18th, 2013 by Ashlyn Perri in CAAMFest 2013, Memoirs of a Superfan

    Dead Dad (Last screening!)

    By Ravi Chandra OK, I’ll try (try!) to keep this short, as I’ve got movies starting this afternoon, and a weekend of CAAMazement ahead.  In brief, Wow, LINSANITY was a great film.  Evan Jackson Leong and his crew have done a fantastic job, and an amazing service with this work that will surely stand the test of […]

    Posted March 13th, 2013 by Ashlyn Perri in Memoirs of a Superfan

    CAAMFest is almost here!  I’m so excited to see what the CAAM team has put together this year – I’ve been holed away watching some screeners, and I’m already impressed.  I don’t think you can go wrong – whether you catch a “Tide” or find a river of your own, you’ll be a happy CAAMper. […]

    Memoirs of a Superfan, Vol. 8.1: CAAMFest – or What’s in a Name?

    Posted February 14th, 2013 by Michael in CAAMFest 2013, Memoirs of a Superfan

    Asian Americans, like many immigrants and the children of immigrants, are used to changing their names.

Patelovich becomes Patel. Piyush becomes […]
