ome friends of mine passed throughover the holidays, as they do each year. They didn’t hang out; they didn’tstay. They never do because they don’t doturkey and they’re too big to fit aroundmy dining-room table.You see, they're whales. My whales. Your whales. Our whales.But their holiday rush is a bit differentthan ours each winter. These are serious whales on a mission: they are trying tokeep a species alive. To do that, they haveto get home by December—January atthe latest—and home has always beenMexico. You see, despite their name, my friends are Baja born and Baja bred.Sure, we call them California grays(uppity Americans that we are), but they only pass by California twice a year ontheir incredible 12,000 mile journey toand from the Arctic to Baja Sur's safelagoons. They're really NortheasternPacific gray whales—the last of theirkind. All their cousins are now extinct:The great Siberian and Atlantic grays thatonce roamed other coasts and othercontinents are gone. We did that, wehumans, earlier this century, turningthem into dog food long after the world'sneed for whale oil was no more. Wealmost did it to our own grays, too,slaughtering their mighty thousandsdown to a mere 500 before someone gotsome sense, thank God, and realized we didn't need a marine-mammal Alpoafter all.Along came a protection act at last, anendangered species list and a chance forthem to continue life on this planet. Anda chance for me, 60 years later, to meetthese majestic creatures face to face andto make friends.It is not a word I use lightly—friends.Friends are people I kiss and hug andcare about. But I've kissed these whales,hanging over the sides of small woodenboats. I've held their faces between my hands, gently stroked their lips, touchedthe cruel barnacles that cover their headsand looked straight down blowholes intotheir dark interiors. I've watched themmate, watched them nurse their babies, watched them nudge two-ton youngsterstoward my outstretched hand and teach anew generation not to now fear man—or woman. Yes, I care about these whales—a lot. But, I've been lucky.

Guardian Angel Island—A Diamond in the Rough
Story and photos by
Graham Mackintosh
n 1973 Charles Lindbergh visited BajaCalifornia in a chartered flying boat.Shortly afterwards he traveled toMexico City, met with the cabinet andsummoned the Mexican media to a pressconference. Naturally, they were allexpecting a homily on aviation. Instead,Lindbergh lectured them passionately about the Sea of Cortez and the need topreserve its magnificent islands. A fewmonths later Charles Lindberghdied…but his enthusiastic plea for theSea of Cortez had not fallen on deaf ears. Within four years, Mexico passed lawsprotecting the islands that had fired hisimagination in the twilight of his life.There are more than 100 islands in theSea of Cortez—some mere islets, thelargest, Tiburon, ranging over 1000 sq.kilometers. Most of them remainuninhabited, pristine biological treasuresreplete with unnamed and endemicspecies. About half of the 120 cactusspecies found on the islands are endemic.Non-native plants are a rarity. In July of 2005, the United Nations proclaimed theislands and their surrounding waters as a World Heritage Site.Isla Angel de la Guarda is the secondlargest island in the Cortez. Forty mileslong and almost ten miles wide in places,it is the unmistakable mountainouslandmass located a dozen miles east of Bahia de los Angeles, beyond the islandsof the inner bay. Devoid of water andseparated from the Baja peninsula by thetreacherous Canal de las Ballenas, itremains uninhabited apart from a fewtemporary fish camps.I had the privilege of spending twomonths there early last year. I arranged tobe transported to the island by panga,together with my gear and kayak.The name “Guardian Angel Island”suggests protection. However, in the winter months prevailing northerly windsoften blast for days unimpeded down theBallenas Channel creating awesome seas.And when the extreme tides of a full ornew moon join or thwart that flow, theseas can be as confused and agitated asany on earth. Whether fishing or bird watching ortrying to find a cooperative chuckwalla tophotograph, I reveled in the privilege of being on an uninhabited desert island,and most days, as far as I knew, I was theonly one there to appreciate it.Given the spectacular shoreline andmountain backdrops, and the dramaticfire of sunrise and twilight, it was easy totake good photographs, but they canbarely convey the panoramic vistas of pastel color, the unreal solidity of theclouded sky, and the glorious thoughtsand feelings they impart.How often have we heard that the oldBaja is no more? It is now a land of Costcos and Burger Kings, of burgeoningdevelopment and crime. Not true, at leastnot entirely—the frontier might havereceded, but thanks to sheerinaccessibility and the vision of peoplelike Lindbergh, there are still vaststretches of the peninsula untouched by modernity—deserts, mountains andislands where you can find yourself severely alone for weeks on end.

Welcome Letter 
 Welcome to the 10th Annual San Diego Asian Film Festival, where greatfilm comes to life! We are presenting our most ambitious program:some 200 films from 20 countries. Crazy, I know. We struggled withthe fact that our 10th anniversary would fall during one of the worstrecessions in recent U.S. history. The natural response would be to cut-back. Instead, we took a risk and doubled the length of our Festivalto two weeks. Despite the economy, we have more loyal members andattendees than ever before, assuring us that we are indeed fulfillingour mission: to connect audiences with the human experience throughthe Pan Asian media arts. We believe film is a powerful universal language that connects us on adeep, meaningful level. In times like this, film offers an escape; storiesof hope and inspiration; and a way to gain new perspectives. That is why we chose to open our Festival with CHILDREN OFINVENTION (p. 36), which could not be more relevant to our economic times. A critically-acclaimed Sundance film directed by emerging filmmaker Tze Chun, CHILDREN OF INVENTION tells thestory of a single mother chasing the American dream while in direfinancial straits. When she disappears, her two young children turn toingenuity to survive. Bookending the Festival as our Closing Night Filmis the premiere of IP MAN (p. 37), an epic martial arts tale inspired by the true story of Bruce Lee’s master, starring Donny Yen.In between is an enormous selection of films, panels, parties, livemusic performances, a comedy night, a gala awards dinner, an artshow, and our first-ever Audience Award!Sorely missing this year, however, is our beloved friend, George Lin,who died of cancer during last year’s Festival. He founded the DCAPA Film Festival in 2000, the same year our festival began. In 2003,he joined the SDAFF as our Program Director and Associate FestivalDirector. He championed indie filmmakers, mentored students, andlived life to the fullest. His handiwork is all over this festival.In George’s memory, we are heavily promoting Cancer Awarenessthrough public service announcements, an origami Crane Project,and closely-themed films (see 100, BE SURE TO SHARE, IN LOVE WE TRUST). We want everyone to know the importance of gettingscreened for cancer, and that a diagnosis of cancer is neither shamefulnor hopeless. Like film, cancer affects all of us in one way or another.Finally, I want to personally thank my husband, Louis Song; our chairman Dan Hom and board of directors; our hardworking staff,members, volunteers; and our generous sponsors, without any of whom this festival would not be possible.Life is short, and SDAFF 2009 will whiz by. Let’s make the most of it!Carpe Diem,Lee Ann KimFounder and Executive Director

 Letter from the Chairman 
 Welcome to the 10th Annual San Diego Asian Film Festival!
As chairman, I am proud to helpthe SDAFF celebrate ten wonderful years of films, programs and social awareness. Through theyears, SDAFF has shown hundreds of films to moviegoers across San Diego and has truly fulfilledits purpose of engaging and connecting audiences to the human experience through cinema.My passion for movies sparked my initial interest in SDAFF in 2002. Since then, I have come tothe festival every year to enjoy films, festivities, and meet great people. I’m inspired by the many attendees who share our passion, as well as the amount of hard work and dedication the staff puts into each and every event. It wasn’t long before I knew that I wanted to do something morefor this organization. Initially, I became involved as a board member and was nominated andelected chairman in 2007.It is truly an honor to be working with such a great group of talented individuals, and I hopethat in the next ten years our Foundation’s work will continue to touch audiences as it has me.A special thanks to the 2009 Board of Directors for their continued support, volunteerism and leadership. I personally wishincoming chairman Stephen Chin a successful 2010, and I also want to recognize my dear friend and executive director Lee AnnKim, who has grown this festival since its inception. We all embrace the SDAFF for providing our community with a true culturaltreasure.Enjoy the show!Dan HomChairmanSan Diego Asian Film FoundationOur friends at the San Diego Film Critics Society believe anyone can watch films with a critical eye. This allows you toexercise analytical parts of the brain that often go unused, and acquire skills that can carry over into other parts of your life.Here are some tips:• If you liked or didn’t like a movie, figure out why. It’s crucial to understand your own aesthetic and to be able toexpress why some films or filmmakers appeal to you and others leave you cold.• Pay close attention to what goes into making the story. Does the dialogue seem honest and believable, and do theactors carry it off? Is the plot solid, or does it have as many holes as a piece of Swiss cheese?• Do you think the director had a cohesive vision for the entire movie, and if so, can you express what you think it was?• Do you feel like the movie is photographed well? Does the cinematography enhance or distract from the story itself? What about the costumes or the sets?• Try a movie you think you might not like. Catch a horror film, sample a romantic comedy, don’t be afraid of subtitles,and watch something that has no movie stars in it. A good critic has to be open to everything.
