The Los Angeles Asian Pacific Film Festival (LAAPFF) takes place April 28 to May 7, 2011.

"The Case" tells the story of Detective Jack Law who gets a visit from a client named Faye S. seeking help to retrieve her kidnapped twin sister from the notorious crime boss Dr. Acula. Will he take the case?

It stars Max Phyo, Cyndee San Luis, Hidekun Hah, Oliver Seitz and Robert Tasch with Cinematography/Camera/SFX/Lighting by Rick Darge. Music by Kevin MacLeod.

According to filmmakers, "The Case" is an homage to the concept of "Genre" and blends different styles such as Film Noir, Sci-Fi, Spaghetti Westerns and Horror Camp, and is in many ways a tribute to the films of Ed Wood and Tim Burton's "Ed Wood" (1995).

It was initially conceived as a three-minute short for the Interpretations Short Film Initiative sponsored by You Offend Me You Offend My Family (YOMYOMF), only four lines of dialogue could be used: (1) "It's not something I'd do"; (2) "Well?"; (3) "Its not what I expected"; and (4) "You sure?".

The full 6 1/2 minute version makes its premiere at the 2011 LAAPFF.
