The Paradise We Are Looking For presented by Pacific Arts Movement

Helmed by four award winning cinematic voices, these four short docs from THE PARADISE WE ARE LOOKING FOR map multiple San Diego’s — all distinctly Asian American. A 2008 University City plane crash that casts a somber shadow over a military city. City Heights mortuary workers who help refugee families grieve. The electric immigrant space of a karaoke-restaurant in National City. And interviews at a South Bay 20th high school reunion that reveal that memories are not always reliable.

Pacific Arts Movement (Pac Arts) is one of the largest media arts organizations in North America that focuses on Asian American and Asian international cinema. For more information about Pac Arts and the San Diego Asian Film Festival, please visit

High school reunions surface a range of emotions tethered to a moment in time that can be contentious, unsettling, joyful, expectant, and so much more. R.J. Lozada interviews a handful of his classmates 20 years post graduation and finds that with new perspective comes reconciliation and acceptance.
