  2. POI E: THE STORY OF OUR SONG

    Tearepa Kahi / Asia Pop! / New Zealand / 2016 / comedy, documentary, music / 92 mins
    Fusing Maori tradition and a disco beat, “Poi E” topped the charts in 1984 and went on to becoming New Zealand’s unofficial national anthem. This joyous documentary tells the story of a community that came together to preserve culture and language under the vision of the inspiring soul singer Dalvanius Prime.

  3. SHE’S THE BOSS

    Ham Tran / Asia Pop! / Vietnam / 2017 / comedy, romance / 114 mins
    Fiery boss Oanh has one simple rule: no intra-office romances. Little does anybody know that she is violating her own rule herself. Unhinged and free-flying, while still cohering a compelling battle-of-the-sexes across work and home, SHE’S THE BOSS is a splashy showcase for some of Vietnam’s most radiant comedic talents.
