The official festival trailer of the motion picture “White Frog.” The world premiere will be on March 8, 2012 as the Opening Film at the San Francisco International Asian American Film Festival. The trailer features music of David Choi, Big Phony and MC Jin.
An emotional teen drama with comedy and heart, White Frog stars Booboo Stewart (The Twilight Saga) as high-school freshman Nick, a young boy with Asperger’s syndrome who is often neglected and misunderstood by his seemingly perfect family. When tragedy suddenly strikes, Nick is forced out of his comfort zone, and into finding the strength he needs to survive. This powerful drama by the director of The People I’ve Slept With and Shopping for Fangs, boasts some of the most influential and recognizable Asian American talent today, including B.D. Wong (Law and Order), Harry Shum Jr. (Glee), and Joan Chen (this year’s Festival Spotlight Honoree). The stellar cast also includes Gregg Sulkin (Wizard of Waverly Place), Tyler Posey (Teen Wolf) Justin Martin (The Soloist), Manish Dayal (Beverly Hills 90210) and Kelly Hu (Hawaii Five O, X-Men2).
The screening will be followed by the Opening Night Gala Reception at 9:30pm and promises to be a star-studded affair at the Asian Art Museum and attended by many of White Frog‘s cast and crew. The Gala will feature delicious food and drink from some of the Bay Area’s best restaurants, including Bushi-Tei, Chotto, Dosa, Serpentine, and Yoshi’s.
