‘Better Luck’ Today



Jen Yamato


In “BLT,” an accomplished high school student, Ben (Shen) seems to excel at almost everything except winning over his dream girl, Stephanie (Cheung). When he begins an unlikely friendship with trouble-seeking tough guy Daric (Fan), Ben becomes involved in petty crime that gets increasingly dangerous, with his various illegal ventures extending to include Stephanie and her wealthy beau, Steve (John Cho).

Other conference topics included “Directing Horror and Genre,” “Editing for Animation and Stop Motion,” “The future of Storytelling in the Digital Space,” “Media and Social Change,” “Impact and Visibility on the Digital Frontier and Beyond,” “Women on Top: Meet the creative Forces Behind Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Queen of the South and Queen Sugar,” and “Independent Filmmaking in the Era of Digital Distribution” (at the Korean Cultural Center).
