Sokolsky on the Arts and Entertainment
A weekly program focusing on the arts and entertainment
Itís another film festival. But this one is different, aimed specifically at Halloween. Itís ďThe Supernatural in Southeast Asian StudiesĒ festival set for Oct. 31 to Nov. 2 and it will deal with Asian horror films.
Lan Duong, one of the eventís organizers visits Arts and Entertainment Editor Bob Sokolsky to discuss the unusual productions that will make up the event.
Duong says the films differ from American horror movies in that they are dealing with broader and more historical themes.
She says her hope is to attract a broader audience and to display an art form that differs from the usual product.
Whatís more, she adds, is that the films will be in their native languages but will have English subtitles. And the ticket price canít be beaten because this program is free.
