CAAMFest (formerly the San Francisco International Asian American Film Festival) takes place March 14 through 24 at venues across the Bay Area, showcasing film, music, food and digital media by some of the world's leading Asian and Asian American artists.

Zhang Yuan, Sixth Generation standout and two-time World Cinema Grand Jury Prize winner at Sundance (for 2006's "Little Red Flower" and 2009's "Dada's Dance"), has won international acclaim for his latest, an urban drama focusing on the left-behind young adults of Beijing.

Synopsis: A motley group of four down-and-out twentysomethings navigates the fringes of China's economic boom.

WARNING! Trailer contains violent and disturbing images:

"Highly accessible and heartfelt" -- Anthony Kaufman, Screen Daily

"Zhang tempers his bleak outlook with resilient dry humor that makes his memorable characters' struggles for survival surprisingly enjoyable" -- Ronnie Scheib, Variety

Official selection of the Busan, Hong Kong Asian, Toronto and Vancouver film festivals

We'll meet up after the movie.  Join us!
