Hello everyone, 

In this special episode of Heroic Purgatory, John and Jason discuss the 2021 edition of the New York Asian Film Festival (NYAFF). For the second year in a row, NYAFF goes online (well, partially), which means everyone in North America can enjoy their wonderful selection of Asian films. In the episode we talk about our overall impression of the festival and list our favorite films. 

The festival will run from August 6th to the 22th. For info and ticket purchasing visit nyaff.org

We hope you enjoy.
