A very unique independent film titled PUNCHING AT THE SUN directed by Tanuj Chopra will be screening on Saturday March 18th at the Asian American Film Festival in Berkeley at 7:00 pm at the Pacific Film Archive Theater. Shot entirely on the streets of Queens, NYC the film stars local teenagers from the community and just premiered at Sundance in January to cheering crowds. It's a film filled with humor, pain and politics and is the first feature by a new director with a fresh voice.

Also on March 17th, we are gonna have the WEST COAST PREMIERE AFTER-PARTY starting at 9:00 pm at 111 Minna. Beats will be laid down by Maneesh the Twister of the Dhamaal crew, Kush Arora and Marcella (Lady-Lu). The party is also featuring a very special live Bhangra dance performace by Dholrhythms. Admission is $10 or $5 with a stub from the movie and all proceeds go towards getting this movie out to the people in 2006. It's gonna be off the hook so come through and celebrate the spirit of independent film.
