Synopsis: (Experimental, Film Noir, Performance Art) B-boy meets Film Noir. Kismet 91, with an all Southeast Asian cast, is an homage to the classic Hollywood melodramas from the late 1940's and 50's. Our upbeat hip hop hero will soon, in the words of the great Rod Sterling, enter into a dimension of the unknown, a place where he may find shadows of himself and... his kismet.

Production Background & Fun Facts: Part of the fun of doing an homage to film noir was the research hours spent with cast and crew watching classic black and white films. How many Southeast Asian "twenty somethings" get a chance to channel Orson Welles and Marlene Dietrich?
