WEST IS WEST – OPENING NIGHT FEATURE
WEST IS WEST is the official SF International Asian American Film Festival Opening Night feature film.
The much-anticipated follow-up to the pioneering cross-cultural comedy EAST IS EAST, WEST IS WEST is the coming-of-age story not only of a 15-year-old boy, but also his 60-year-old father. In this second installment, we follow the multi-ethnic Khan family from Manchester to rural Pakistan, where patriarch George “Genghis” Khan (played by a luminous Om Puri) attempts to reconnect his cheeky Anglicized youngest son Sajid to his culture, all while facing a past he left behind decades ago.
