New Film: Model Minority

The Film Synopsis:

L.A. teenagers survive the treacherous world of peer pressure, drug dealers, juvenile hall and dysfunctional families. Kayla, an underprivileged Japanese American 16-year-old, endangers her promising future as an aspiring artist when she becomes involved with a drug dealer. It’s a new take on growing up bicultural in multicultural LA.

The film deals joins Wassup Rockers, Kids, Mosquita y Mari, and Better Luck Tomorrow in dealing with the pressures and temptations of youth. It rocked the LA Asian American Film Festival; the next stop is the 2012 Asian American International Film Festival in New York.
