Check out more about tonight’s film “Touch”.

See you at the Bijou and Schnitzer tonight!
Touch [109mins] [Tickets]
A mechanic looking to save his faltering marriage strikes up an unlikely friendship with a shy Vietnamese-American manicurist, who not only cleans his greasy hands but also gives him advice about his love life. This sensual film explores the sense of touch and its emotional impact – how with just a simple touch, we can reveal our deepest longings and even heal a wounded soul.
Take a look at some of the great films we have this year! We hope to see you THIS weekend April 27th-29th at the Bijou Art Cinemas!
DisOrient was invited on local radio station KLCC’s “Living Large” program to let folks know about our film festival this weekend. Hear what DisOrient Staff Anselmo Villanueva and Nadia Raza had to say about the films this year and the festival itself!
