Decent lineup i have to say, not the most popular of the asian cinema but good films nonetheless.

here's some info from the top of my head,

GOZU is one of many films Takashi Miike (audition/ Ichi the killer) releases every year. You'll enjoy it if you like the director.

PURPLE BUTTERFLY was at Cannes last year, good looking film from Lou Ye who made the far superior Suzhou River. The film stars Zhang Ziyi

THE STORY OF WEEPING CAMEL was officially submitted by Mongolia for foreign film academy award. Recently opened to good reviews in NY/LA.

I've heard nothing but good things about The Story of Weeping Camel, and its one of the foreign films that I'm waiting for to be released in the DC area.

what? you missed the DC Filmfest screening of "Weeping Camel" earlier this month? (for shame)

limited release begins sometime in July I believe.
