Amir Motlagh's excellent short documentary "My Break Ups Into A Million Pieces" will have its US festival premiere at the San Francisco International Asian American Film Festival, which runs from March 16th- 26th, 2006. The film screens in a program called Mystery Arcade Shorts Program with two screening dates: March 19th at the Kabuki 3 at 5:45 PM and March 23 at Kabuki 4 at 7:30 PM. Complete fest program goes up on the web on Feb 14th (a nice Valentine's Day gift isn't it?). Catch this doc all you Frisco kids. It's about a painter, as remembered by his daughter. And it's also about moving to America.
Amir tells his stories through the use of poetic images, narrations, home movie footage, and with the help of music that he composed & created. His previous short "Still Lover", a romantic-drama tale told using still photos, was popular on AtomFilm. He is currently at work on a feature called "Whale".
