’1040′ World Premiere in Los Angeles Friday, March 12, 2010
LOS ANGELES, March 3 /PRNewswire/ — Feature film documentary 1040, produced by Adventures.TV in conjunction with Arowana Films, is scheduled to premiere at the 2010 City of the Angels Film Festival (CAFF) on Friday, March 12th. The film will be screened at The Directors Guild of America (DGA) in Hollywood at 7:00 PM, followed by a Q&A with the film’s cast and crew and the Official 1040 After Party.
1040 looks at Christianity from an unconventional lens as it explores its influence in Asia through the eyes of both Christians and non-Christians alike. Renowned minister and artist Jaeson Ma tours across China, South Korea, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore and Indonesia filming the dramatic changes taking place through interviews with top Asian celebrities, artists, entrepreneurs and Christian ministers.
Asian artists like Van Ness Wu, Jin the MC, and Sean from “Jinusean” are a few of the celebrity figures who provide insight into the role of Christianity in the entertainment industry and how it is impacting popular culture and changing the lives of artists, celebrities and fans. Hip hop legend and minister MC Hammer, who is also featured in this film, stated, “The world is looking at Asia at this historical moment. With its economic rise, there is also a powerful spiritual movement that is spreading and transforming entire cultures.”
1040 refers to the area known as the “10/40 Window”, a region between 10 degrees and 40 degrees north latitude that spans from North Africa to East Asia, where Christianity is currently spreading and reaching areas that in the past were predominantly Buddhist or Muslim.
“With interviews and never-before-heard stories, 1040 sheds light on the incredible changes taking in Asia today,” stated Ma. “The phenomenon it documents is profoundly significant to people of all backgrounds.”
Various community organizations such as Asian Professional Exchange (APEX) and Privy will be at the world premiere to show their support for 1040. The Official 1040 After Party will be at Opera Crimson in Hollywood.
Tickets for the premiere can be purchased online at www.caff.eventbrite.com for $10.00.
