In the not-so-distant past China was a country that struggled to feed its own people. An estimated 20 to 45 million Chinese died of starvation between 1958 and 1962. China’s population today is over 1.3 billion, more than four times the population of the United States. The challenges China faces in moving from a developing to a developed nation are unique and daunting, made even more difficult under the scrutiny of a globally connected modern world.

Tonight’s filmmaker Danielle Agnello comes to us with two films, her first feature Lime Salted Love, a dark surreal look at loneliness and the things we do to avoid it and the dark secrets that got us there; and her just completed short Cowboys and Indians: The Great Diversion which shows up anti-immigrationists as morans.
Lime Salted Love was written and co-directed by Danielle who also co-stars in the film. It’s tragedy of love and secrets, very different from Cowboys and Indians which shows the idiocy of Tea Party/Minutemen types with their own words.
