The Imperialists Are Still Alive!

Rated NR 91 min. 2011

A successful visual artist working in post-9/11 Manhattan, Asya lives the life of the hip and glamorous, replete with exclusive art parties, supermodels, and stretch limousines, while she carefully follows the situation in the Middle East on television. Asya learns that her childhood friend, Faisal, has disappeared-the victim of a purported CIA abduction. That same night, she meets Javier, a sexy Mexican PhD student, and romance blossoms. Javier finds Asya's conspiracy theories overly paranoid -- but nothing in Asya's world is as it seems. Asya's life is reflective of the textural themes of cultural fusion, and the complications and humor that arise out of everyday life.
