When I first saw The Slanted Screen in the program for the SF International Asian American Film Festival, I thought it must be a different Jeff Adachi than the current SF Public Defender. He had even been one of the subjects of Presumed Guilty.
But it turned out that while he originally just intended to produce the documentary on Asian men in film and tv, he ended up directing the film.
It is playing at the Roxie through at least Thursday, May 25th. There is a Q&A and party after the Friday, May 19th 8 pm screening.
More photos from the panel, screening, and party in March.
