Pac-Arts and the San Diego Asian Film Festival host the annual Spring Showcase April 28 through May 5 at the UltraStar Mission Valley. Spring Showcase kicks off on an upbeat note with the documentary "The Music of Strangers: Yo-Yo Ma and the Silk Road Ensemble." The film is directed by Morgan Neville who won an Oscar for another musical documentary, "Twenty Feet From Stardom." This time around Neville looks to cellist Yo-Yo Ma and his project to bring musicians from along the famous trade route together. The film looks to the role music plays and to creating unexpected connections. Festival programmer Brian Hu said for the opening night screening in San Diego, Pac-Arts is bringing in local musicians "to give some of the instruments in the film a local dimension."
