Acclaimed director Grace Lee ("Barrier Device" and "American Zombie") spotlights the iconic Grace Lee Boggs, the 98-year-old outspoken activist, feminist, author and philosopher.
Lee provides a storytelling platform for Boggs to share her experiences as an advocate focusing on the struggles in the African American community, including the actions she has taken which have led to her significant impact on social justice in America.
A VIP reception will honor CAAMFest 2014 award winners and in the company of special guests including Director Grace Lee and the revolutionary herself, Grace Lee Boggs.
More special guests are expected to be in attendance and will be announced on the website. A combination film and reception ticket are required for entrance to the reception.
CAAMFest’s international centerpiece is "Cold Eyes," a remake of the 2007 Hong Kong film "Eye in the Sky" directed by Jo Ui-seok and Kim Byung-seo.
Set against the backdrop of the streets of Seoul, the story follows an elite police unit, specializing in surveillance, as they track down the ruthless leader of string of robberies.
The crime thriller screened at the 2013 Busan International Film Festival before becoming South Korea’s biggest hit of 2013. Director Jo Ui-seok and Producer Song Dae-chan will be in attendance.
Combination tickets for "American Revolutionary: The Evolution of Grace Lee Boggs" and the Centerpiece Reception as well as screening only tickets to "Cold Eyes" are now on sale through February 12, the day before CAAM’s official press conference.
