Choking Man

This highly touted indie flick by Steve Barron explores the cold-shoulder alienation that the Land of the Free often offers to poor emigres by focusing on the relationship between an Ecuadoran dishwasher and a Chinese waitress in a downtrodden Queens, New York, diner. Presented by the church's Oasis Film Group.
