PALI ROAD by Jonathan Lim Out Festival Week 2016 at the DGA
The Los Angeles Asian Pacific Film Festival closes out a successful Festival Week 2016 with the Los Angeles Premiere screening of PALI ROAD, a new feature by Jonathan Lim. The screening is slated for THURSDAY, APRIL 28, 7 PM at the Directors Guild of America, 7920 Sunset Blvd. in West Hollywood. The Festival Awards Presentation of the Grand Jury Awards for Best Feature-Length Narrative and Documentary as well as the Festival Golden Reel Award for Excellence in Short Film will precede the Closing Night program; and director Jonathan Lim and members of his cast will participate in a post-screening Q&A session.
Director Lim brings together a stellar international cast including Chinese rising star Michelle Chen, Sung Kang, Jackson Rathbone, Elizabeth Sung, and Tsai Ma for this stylish romance mystery. Lily (Chen), a Chinese doctor, is doing her residency in a Hawaiian hospital under Dr. Kayne (Kang). She has fallen in love with schoolteacher Neil (Rathbone) — at least, this is what she remembers. After a terrible car accident, Lily wakes up to discover, in horror, a married life with Dr. Kayne, including a 5-year-old son she has never seen. With everyone around her denying Neil's existence, Lily begins to question her sanity, as recurring memories of Neil force her to embark on a journey to retrace her past and discover the truth.
The screening of PALI ROAD precedes a limited U.S. theatrical engagement that begins the following day, Friday, April 29.
