I can't believe it??  Best doc??  Wha??  I think those people in LA get it!

I am so absolutely thrilled, I can't tell you!   I feel like I am at the Academy Awards!


THANK YOU ALL :  especially my family who worked for food and late curfews.  Oh and Donna Hansen who worked for baby sitting money!  Most of all,  Tyler Merkel who worked like a dog for almost nothing but belief in a crazy old film student who spent a lot of time crying in her basement.  My talented kids, Andrea, Sam, and Fuji are a blessing beyond belief and my husband, Steve Dreskin, who did not know where all the grocery money was going.  "Tofu has gotten expensive, dear."  Thanks too, to Shannon Umetani , Keiko Ozaki, and Jason McDaniels who gave my film the final polish it needed to get recognized!


Oh this is so trite and crappy-- but so true that there were many times I thought of giving up and thinking NO ONE is going to ever be interested in this but my family.  The amount of guts it takes to finish a film is unbeiievable!


I am already in pre-production for a new feature film. This woman is on fire. Can't believe I am doing this, but get your email lists ready for a hard run at crowd funding for an ass-kickin Asian Cowgirl film staring George Takei and Margaret Cho (They don't know me yet)-- Tarrantino style.  Look for "DIRTY ROTTEN TOFU AND THE GOHAN GIRLS' in the subject matter of future emails-- Here's to the future of a really independent cinema!
