Art Event

  1. San Diego Asian Film Festival, April 20, 2012, Film Festival.
  2. I will remember the film from this event.  I also will remember being surprised about how much I really enjoyed the film, even being in subtitles.
  3. There was nothing too specific that can influence my work because I do not work in film.
  4. I discovered to give all cinema a chance.  I really didn’t think I would like anything at an Asian film festival and I was mistaken.
  5. There were no flaws in the event.  The Asian Film Festival committee did a good job and even spoke about the film before its viewing.
  6. I learned somewhat about Asian Style of films and how its somewhat different from Western styles.
  7. I do respect the person who produced this film because it was very good.

Art Event

  1. Precious Knowledge Event & screening,@ CSUSM, April 11, 2012
  2. I came away from this event with so much knowledge about the issues going on in Arizona.  The film was about the Ethnic Studies programs being banned from the schools.
  3. Something specific that can influence me would be to take action in what I believe in.  These kids fought/are still fighting for this program to be let back into schools.
  4. I will rethink the way I think about any ethnic studies or teachings I hear about or see.  People think it is Anti-American or bad to have in schools, but looking at it from the other side it actually really helped these kids.
  5. There were no flaws in the event.  After the screening and initial speech on the topic, the presenter, Priscilla Rodriguez, stayed for a long time and answered questions which I thought was nice of her to do.
  6. I learned something about the film aspect of the event.  The film we screened was so nicely made and influential that it definitely demonstrates how to make a persuasive documentary.
  7. I truly felt respect for the presenter Priscilla.  She was a student herself and was also featured in the film.  She was so active in the cause and really was inspiring.

Art Event

  1. Visiting Artist Brian Hu @ CSUSM, Feb 15, 2012, Organizer of the San Diego Asian Film Foundation came to CSUSM to lecture on Contemporary Asian Cinema and the “long take”.
  2. This event was helpful and I came away with a few things I definitely did not know about Asian Film and how they do extremely long takes and it is cool because you are seeing all of the movies actions preformed in real-time.
  3. This lecture might really influence my own work. In American film, we do so many short, quick cuts and its because of our “more, faster, NOW, NOW, NOW” attitudes. I might try to do some longer takes in film.
  4. I might look past the long take being “boring” and think really about what the director is trying to convey. 
  5. The lecture did not have any flaws. He was well-prepared and had a lot of clips to demonstrate what he was talking about.
  6. I learned some huge differences between Asian Cinema and Western film and how they are similar in few ways.
  7. Yes, I felt respect for the artist because he was a very educated man who seemed passionate for film and cinema.
