Dir. Steven De Castro. 2014, 58 mins. Digital projection. Filmmaker Steven De Castro follows jazz saxophonist, revolutionary activist, and award-winning avant-garde composer Fred Ho through the last year of his life as he launches books, gives provocative talks, and stages his final work: an anti-imperialist jazz samurai opera performed on a New York stage. Filmed over the course of 2013, the film provides a glimpse into Ho’s extraordinary life as a musician, mentor, friend, and pioneer who inspired others through his courage and persistence.

Hope Award at International Film Festival Manhattan, and was an official selection of the CAAMFest, Los Angeles Asian Pacific Film Festival, Asian Cinevision’s Asian American International Film Festival (NY), and Boston Asian American Film Festival.
