Third World Newsreel (TWN) and NewFilmmakers Series are proud to present Asian American Filmmakers Program. Please join us on Tuesday, July 5th at 6PM.

Life or Liberty by Konrad Aderer, 8 minutes
Shokriea Yaghi copes with the senseless incarceration of her husband in 9/11's aftermath. A Japanese American woman who lived through the WWII camps shares her bitterness and her fears for the future, as immigration law expert Cyrus Mehta and former federal prosecutor Michael Wildes debate the larger context of anti-terror policies. Part of the Call to Media Action series.

Rising Up: The Alams by Konrad Aderer, 11 minutes
See how a Bangladeshi-American family targeted by Special Registration fights back. As part of the Homeland security measures, immigrant men from 25, mostly Muslim countries were required to enroll in a Special Registration program. The result: no evidence of terror, but some 13,000 people are now being deported mostly for expired visas. The Alams were among the many families who believed that voluntarily participating in the Special Registration would show their loyalty. Instead, they face the prospect of breaking up their family, despite a decade of hard work and the raising of two children. Working with DRUM (Desis Rising Up and Moving), the Queens South Asian activist group, the Alams have become activists, organizing to fight for their right to stay. Part of the Call for Change series.

Two Months to Home by Janice Ahn, 8 minutes
In the months prior to 9-11, an Afghan woman named Samira Rahman narrowly escapes from the Taliban, losing her family. After settling down in Long Island and beginning a new one, Samira is taken away by Homeland Security agents in the middle of the night. Her husband Abdul, who runs a coffee cart in South Ferry, and their two young boys await news of her fate.

Dastaar: Defending Sikh Identity by Kevin Lee, 12 min
A restaurant owner beaten. A policeman fired. A 20 year subway conductor born in the U.S., threatened with job loss: All for wearing the signature turbans of their religion, Sikhism. Since 9/11, hate crimes and job losses have plagued the Sikh-American community, whose religion originated in India, and is not even Islamic. In response, the NYC Sikh community has organized to confront the bias and attacks, through legal suits, pressure on city officials and proactive public education. An excellent introduction to an often misunderstood religion and the success of community activism. Part of the Call for Change series.

December 7/September 11 by Ann Brandman & Paul Nishijima, 15 minutes
A comparison of how the events and possible after effects of September 11th may mirror those of the attack on Pearl Harbor. A collection of interviews with Japanese-American veterans who witnessed the events of December 7 in Hawaii offer their insight into what has happened and what might be to come. Part of the Call to Media Action series.

Enemy Alien Sneak Preview at Anthology Film Archives
Join Japanese American filmmaker Konrad Aderer to a sneak preview of his upcoming documentary film Enemy Alien.

Enemy Alien, a first-person documentary, is the gripping story of the fight to free Farouk Abdel-Muhti, a gentle but indomitable Palestinian-born human rights activist detained in a post-9/11 sweep of Muslim immigrants. Told through the eyes of the filmmaker, the grandson of Japanese Americans interned during World War II, this documentary takes on unprecedented intimacy and historical resonance.

As the filmmaker confronts his own family legacy of incarceration, his involvement in the current struggle deepens. Resistance brings consequences: In retaliation for organizing a massive protest from inside detention, Farouk is beaten and locked in solitary confinement, and his American-born son Tarek is arrested in a counterterrorism investigation into the documentary itself.

Tuesday, July 5th, 9:30PM
Anthology Film Archives
32 Second Avenue, corner of East Second Street
New York, NY
Admission: $6

Hi everybody,

We are 2002studios based in Harrow, NW London in the UK. We are currently recording a lot of multi-lingual voice-over projects for well-known multimedia and linguistic companies. These projects range from video tutorials to audio integrated software and even complete audio books with music and sound effects! We would love to work with you to overdub your films in many different languages. How do we make that happen?

Well, we have our very own database of over 150 native speakers in 38 different languages. We provide male as well as female voice-over actors in English (U.K. regional dialects as well as American English), French, Dutch (Flemish is also available), German, Spanish, Portuguese, Italian,… but also Japanese, Indonesian, Mandarin, Cantonese, Farsi, Croatian, Hungarian, Turkish and many other languages. If we don’t have a language in our database that you are currently looking for or if you are not pleased with our selection, then we will hold auditions and find you a suitable voice-over actor at no cost.

Linguists have verified all our native speakers in the database so that we can provide 100% authenticity. 100% of the recording takes place in our London studio, so we have a consistent sound, have complete oversight of the quality.

We provide all this with VERY COMPETITIVE pricing and we are not shy to throw in some bonuses when asked to do so (Think music and sound design).

If you are interested in finding out more, feel free to contact us anytime.

Hello All,

Are you producing or planning a documentary in the Arab World, in general, or in Morocco, in particular? If you are and need a fixer, cultural consultant, facilitator, or basic translator, I am qualified and excited to contribute to your production. This region's dynamism delivers a constant flow of content ripe for documentation and fresh perspective--the Arab Spring; (mis)perceptions of Islam; the post Bin Laden Al Qaeda; its ongoing wars and conflicts; growing sectarianism; gender issues...the list is always rich. I'm knowledgeable and passionate about this region's history, culture, and its peoples and would be eager to channel this insight into documentary film-making. Please check out my profile for essential info and contact me for a full resume/more details: alex(dot)safos(at)gmail.com. Thanks for keeping me in-mind if the right opportunity presents itself. –Best, Alex

My name is Jeff Dreyer. I'm a father of a Special Needs 22 yr old child. I'm so very tired of hearing the derogatory, demeaning and hurtful word "retard" being used so rampantly these days. I made an 18 minute documentary titled "it's Just Not Funny". The premise is to get the entertainment industry to take the word "retard" out of their scripts. The video was on YouTube for nine days only. It had almost 600 views though. I had over 30 wonderful comments on YouTube, and I received from across the country another 100 positive messages on my Face Book page and my birdland@cox.net e-mail.
Here's the issue. The Special Olympics Southern Cal. made me take it down, because they said some of my content is negative towards the entertainment industry. That's the idea. Someone has to step up an speak out against the offenders that perpetuate this use. It's everywhere these days. TV, movies, talk shows, interviews et cetera. The person that edited it for me isn't interested in continuing with my project. I need someone to help me take the SOSC logo out of some of the footage, and remove their name from the credits. I then want to enter the documentary in some film festivals. If the right person with some horse power in the business viewed it, and they have a Special Needs child, sibling, relative or friend, the doc would catch fire. Then possibly we can make the doc larger and get some results. Anyone that would like to volunteer about five hours would certainly be included in the credits. I live in S. Orange County Cal. I could come up to Los Angeles if need be. Thanks, Jeff

Hi everyone,

Only 19 days left for our Kickstarter fundraising campaign to complete and we need YOUR support to reach our goal. If you haven’t contributed yet, please click here to donate to our project so we can bring the much-needed humanitarian help to women who are victims of sex trafficking.

http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/iLan/holy-ghetto-0

The US State department Trafficking-In-Person report (TIP report) clearly indicates the stagnation of Israel’s enforcement in regards to sex trafficking. After speaking to a senior Police official who specializes in curbing sex trafficking in Israel, he revealed to me in a personal interview that trafficked women numbers are rising again, and this time, the traffickers are choosing South American women as their target.

I'm posting this for a good friend, Jackie, whose daughter is moving to London:

Two recent university grads from the States are looking for a flat in London. Both have jobs at starting salaries, (one at a law firm in Hammersmith and the other at Reuters in Canary Wharf) and are looking for a (furnished) flat on a convenient tube line for both. Would appreciate any leads and/or a suggestion of a real-estate agent who could be helpful. Arriving in London July 18th and can begin looking at flats then. Thanks!

DocuClub in July!

Our July DocuClub will take place on Wednesday, July 27, 7 p.m., at DCTV, located at 87 Lafayette (at Walker).

This month, we will screen a rough cut of Quel Souvenir by Danya Abt. In 2003, construction was completed on a pipeline that stretches a thousand kilometers from the oil fields of Chad to the beaches of Cameroon. Funded by oil giants Exxon, Chevron and Petronas, and politically insured by the World Bank, the Chad-Cameroon Oil Pipeline was a beacon of hope to the Chadian and Cameroonian people. It promised to spread prosperity and opportunity through some of the poorest communities in the world. *Quel Souvenir* follows the path of the Chad-Cameroon pipeline to witness its lasting effects, featuring the compelling individuals who live along its path. From the fishing ports of Kribi to oil installations of Doba, the stunning diversity of the landscape through which the pipeline passes reflects the many different Africans who live with it daily. Despite their differences, the communities along the pipeline speak with one voice to ask “If the land is so rich, why are we so poor?” As the world looks increasingly to Sub-Saharan African to satisfy its thirst for oil, this timely film asks what is the human cost of this extraction, and how oil effects the struggle for survival, the fight for democracy and the dream of peace. To see a trailer, please go to: http://danyaabt.com/?p=95.

Director/Producer Danya Abt’s desire to use film to create a more just and peaceful world has driven her from her native Detroit to the bayous of Louisiana and as far as the deserts of Central Africa. Her films have been featured at the MoMa in New York, the Detroit Institute of the Arts and a variety of community gathering places to generate dialogue and inspire social change. Most recently, Abt served as Senior Video Producer for GRITtv with Laura Flanders. Her work will be included as part of PBS syndication in the fall.

Our moderator will be Chi-hui Yang, a film programmer, lecturer and writer based in New York. As a guest curator, Yang has presented film and video series at film festivals and events internationally, including the 2011 MOMA Documentary Fortnight, 2008 Robert Flaherty Film Seminar (“The Age of Migration”), Seattle International Film Festival, Washington D.C. International Film Festival and Barcelona Asian Film Festival. From 2000-2010, he was the Director and Programmer of the San Francisco International Asian American Film Festival, the largest showcase of its kind in the U.S. Yang is also the programmer of “Cinema Asian America,” a new On-Demand service offered by Comcast and currently a Visiting Scholar at NYU’s Center for Media, Culture and History.

If you’re planning to attend, please RSVP to docuclub@artsengine.net.

Admission at DCTV is free for current DocuClub members and $6 for non-members.
Tickets will be sold at the door, cash only.
Doors open at 6:30 p.m. No admittance after 7:30 p.m.

Membership is an annual $50 and it includes free admission to all DocuClub events. It takes five minutes to join online:
