Catch Waves in Iowa City

The University of Iowa's fifth annual Waves Asian American Film Festival has been highlights films from South Asia as a tribute to the tsunami-affected region.

From Thailand comes two transgendered flicks, the campily melodramatic Adventure of Iron Pussy and the straight-on melodramatic Beautiful Boxer.

Other highlights include The Beautiful Washing Machine from Malaysia, Travellers and Magicians from Bhutan and Takeshi Miike's gut-wrencher, Audition.

The screenings are free and open to the public and will be held from March 31 until April 3 in Iowa City.

Here's the rest of the films on the schedule:
  • After the Apocalypse
  • Bampinay
  • Final Solution
  • Ju-On
  • The Magical Life of Long Tack Sam
  • Sangam
  • Sky Blue
  • Warriors of Heaven and Earth
  • When I Turned Nine
