Los Angeles Pacific Film Festival May 2- May 12

The Los Angeles Pacific Film Festival returns this May. 29 years in a row now, this festival knows what to show. Featuring up and coming Asian directors.

Key of Life

A suicidal actor switches places with a hitman, comedy from Japan

May 04 - 4:00PM  Directors Guild of America 1
"A “Sake-Bomb” is a cocktail created by dropping a shot of sake into a pint of beer. It’s also a comedic road movie about a sarcastic Asian American and his Japanese cousin...."

The end of the trailer and the cosplay grabbed me.
