Dreams and Relationships Take Center Stage at Cinequest 2012


Now in its 22nd year, the Cinequest Film Festival, held each year in San Jose, Calif., once again presents a fascinating array of independent films from around the globe. Each year, I write reviews of Cinequest’s Asian and Asia-related entries for ThingsAsian.com.

This year, of the fifteen Asian or Asia-related entries, nine were available on DVD for pre-screening and review: Warrior Woman, Touch, Av Mevsimi (Hunting Season), Children of the Green Dragon, Mixed Kebab, Black Tulip, Past Summer, Thelma, and No Look Pass. Each film has its own unique theme and style, yet all revolve around the fulfillment of dreams and profoundly meaningful relationships.
