For the last 20 years, the San Diego Asian Film Festival has positioned documentary cinema as the artistic equal to narrative cinema, a genre that crosses borders and subverts cultural boundaries. In the process, we’ve helped celebrate countless voices and perspectives that open up new ways of seeing the world.
With JUMP/CUTS: Homecoming, we cap off our summer event series by looking at the distinguished non-fiction work of one such filmmaker: San Diegan and Montgomery High School alumnus R.J. Lozada, whose work is deeply concerned with how institutions and humanity co-exist. His film “Distance Between,” which won the 2015 SDAFF Grand Jury Award, is a tender, personal reflection on his relationship with a Filipino father. Other works, like “Mothers Day” and “Laps,” are observational portraits of the emotional effects of incarceration.
