Outfest's Fourth LGBT People of Color film festival, FUSION, is this weekend, December 1-3, 2006 in Los Angeles. I am planning on going to the Opening Night gala tomorrow evening at the Aratani/Japan American Theatre (4 South San Pedro Street in downtown Los Angeles) where the program will feature a number of interesting shorts.
MODERN DAY ARRANGED MARRIAGE Dir: Rehana MirzaThe first Fusion film festival was in January 2004, quickly followed by the second in November 2004 (where I was blown away by director Rodney Evans Brother to Brother). I missed last year's edition in November 2005 but I am very glad to see that Fusion is back in 2006 and urge everyone to try and attend one of the sessions (some of the sessions during the day are free!) Attendance by seniors (over 65) and youth (under 21) is completely subsidized.
