Storyline

John Shed, a black American, lives precariously, at the margins of Silicon Valley, with his white girl friend, Belinda. His life is thrown out of balance when his half-Vietnamese daughter, Minh, arrives from a refugee camp in Thailand. Father and daughter begin a parallel search for belonging and identity amidst the salt ponds and tract homes of the south San Francisco Bay Area rarely seen in films. Written by Charles Koppelman <koppelm@well.com>

A quick response to Mr. Breen
27 December 2001 | by lessmosSee all my reviews

A technical note here. It really is ridiculous to complain about seeing the boom in a scene of a film, and then admit in the next sentence that the film was not projected properly. Poor projection, increasingly common these days, is not the fault of the film-makers. I've seen "Dumbarton Bridge," projected properly, and I don't recall this being an issue at all. Let me state, for the record, that I worked on the film, so I guess it's fair to say that I'm inclined to be slightly sympathetic, but please: don't be negative about problems that have nothing to do with the film itself.
