Celestial Avenue plays Opening night at the Arizona Film Fest!

15.04.2010

As part of the Opening Night Celebrations at Arizona Film Fest, Celestial Avenue is one of the featured shorts.

Also, here’s a nice little review:

Ah Gong is a hardworking kitchen hand in Chinatown with the singing voice of a Cantonese angel. The twist: He’s also a white dude. When the loveless Kath overhears him singing his sad and beautiful song in the alley, she abandons her smarmy blind date to pursue this Caucasian/Cantonese mystery. What results is a laugh-out-loud short that rivals Quentin Tarantino in cross-cultural visual experimentation. Part kabuki performance, part karaoke music video and part kung-fu flick, “Celestial Avenue” is a visually stunning tribute to Chinese storytelling — and damned if it isn’t a cute love story to boot.
