China and Taiwan premieres for Steve James films

Allen Iverson No Crossover

No Crossover: The Trial of Allen Iverson will have its Chinese premiere at the 2010 IDOCS International Documentary Forum in Beijing this December. Before then, Steve James and Peter Gilbert's At the Death House Door will screen in October at the TAEDP Murder By Numbers Film Festival in Taiwan.

This will mark the second year in a row that a film by director Steve James has played at the prestigious Chinese festival, which is organized by country's leading film school, the Beijing Film Academy. In 2009, Steve was able to attend the Chinese premieres of Hoop Dreams and Stevie, as well as hosting a masterclass and appearing on several panels. You can read about the reaction to those screenings here. Check this space soon for more details as we receive them!

Steve James and Peter Gilbert's co-directed film At the Death House Door will screen for free on October 9th and 15th at the 3rd Murder by Numbers Film Festival. The festival is hosted by Taiwan Alliance to End the Death Penalty (TAEDP), an organization working against the death penalty in Taiwan.
