Ricepaper is proud to be community partners with the Vancouver Asian Film Festival (VAFF)!  We’re co-presenting the opening night’s feature Man From Reno on Thursday November 6, 7.00pm at the Cineplex Odeon International Village Cinemas.

Synopsis:  In a small town south of San Francisco, Sheriff Paul Del Moral (Pepe Serna) is driving home through the fog when he accidentally strikes a pedestrian, a lone Japanese man. However, before an investigation can take place the man disappears from the hospital without a trace. At the same time, Japanese mystery author Aki Akahori (Ayako Fujitani) takes a trip to San Francisco in order to escape the press tour for her latest book–a potboiler in her world famous “Inspector Takabe” series. Feeling lonely and vulnerable, she begins a romantic affair with a mysterious Japanese traveler from Reno (Kazuki Kitamura). Her new lover is charismatic and charming but abruptly disappears from the hotel, leaving behind his suitcase and a trail of questions…


The 18th Annual Vancouver Asian Film Festival takes place from November 6 – 9, 2014 at Cineplex Odeon International Village Cinemas, located in Vancouver’s historic Chinatown neighbourhood.  VAFF’s theme this year is “What’s Your Perspective?” – a question that calls upon our collective past and present, and how we interact with one another in society.  Please join ACWW in supporting local Asian Canadian and Asian American films!
