FREE “Strangers” Screening @ JANM (CHOPSO)

Join us for the world premiere of the Director’s Cut of STRANGERS by Michael Aki and starring Eugenia Yuan.

A dead man’s girlfriend turns out to be a hit man’s new assignment, but an unfamiliar longing for connection stays his hand. The unlikely odd couple embarks on an odyssey that necessarily evolves into a getaway.

STRANGERS is the sophomoric feature directed by Michael Aki after his first feature, SUNSETS (1997) that world premiered as part of Class of 1997, Asian American New Wave, at the San Francisco International Asian American Film Festival in 1997.

Preceding STRANGERS is Director Brian L. Tan’s 30-minute film HOLDOUT, a historical action drama based on a true story of the last Japanese holdout from World War II. Left behind on an island by his unit, he never learned of Japan’s defeat and has been fighting a one-man war ever since. Suddenly, his worldview is challenged when he encounters a modern American tourist.

Actress Eugenia Yuan, Director Michael Aki and Director Brian L. Tan “BLT” will appear for a Special Q&A after the film.

Join Michael Aki and Eugenia Yuan at the After Party at Little Tokyo’s historic Far Bar (, at 347 East 1st Street, Los Angeles, CA 90012 after 10 pm. Cash bar only.

STRANGERS will stream worldwide date and date on December 7 on CHOPSO.
