East Meets West Meets East: The Art of Asian Cinema

Not only has Asian cinema enjoyed a healthy renaissance in America over the past few years, but with a growing body of work from Asian filmmakers working in the United States, there has been a fascinating cross-pollination of themes, artists and aesthetics. What’s behind this unprecedented blending of American and Asian cinema? Our panel take up the subject of Pan-Pacific crossover and what it means to tell Eastern stories in Western ways and Western stories in Eastern ways? What are the differences, not only in storytelling and sensibility, but in production and working methods? Join us in a celebration of the art of Asian cinema.

As you use our Online Archives, please understand that the information presented from Festivals, Labs, and other activities is taken directly from official publications from each year. While this information is limited and doesn't necessarily represent the full list of participants (e.g. actors and crew), it is the list given to us by the main film/play/project contact at the time, based on the space restrictions of our publications. Each entry in the Online Archives is meant as a historical record of a particular film, play, or project at the time of its involvement with Sundance Institute. For this reason, we can only amend an entry if a name is misspelled, or if the entry does not correctly reflect the original publication.
