SHARE Lucky 13 for Asian American Showcase

Tonight is the launch of the 13th annual Asian American Showcase, and fittingly the theme of this year's event is Lucky 13. You'll be able to catch thirteen Chicago premieres of films and videos by Asian Americans from around the U.S. The showcase is co-hosted by the Gene Siskel Film Center and the Foundation for Asian American Independent Media.

Tim Hugh is the director of the festival. He says the Asian American Showcase was born in an effort to prove a point.
