There has been an ongoing Asian film festival happening at Winchester Thurston School on Morewood Avenue. While there have been other Asian film festivals in Pittsburgh, the films in the Asia Unreeled Film Series are all documentaries. In February they showed a South Korean documentary exposing the high rates of plastic surgery among young women in Korea (Good for Her) and a Japanese documentary about World War II kamikaze pilots (Wings of Defeat). The film series continues this Sunday…
