Asian men, sexuality and ethics in documentary film making - an Australian woman explores all to arrive at the truth.

A True Story About Love is directed by Melissa Kyu-Jung Lee. Melissa set out to make a documentary about Korean-American film-makers, instead she ended up being romantically involved with two different Asian-American men. The result of her adventures culminated into a personal, probing and fun-loving film that raises issues about Asian men, sexual identity, and truth and ethics in documentary film making.

This movie is a part of the Made By Women 2005 International Women's Film Festival, which is now on a tour around India, with the British Council's support. The Festival is the brainchild of Meenakshi Shedde, former film critic with The Times Of India, and Point Of View, a non-profit organisation from Mumbai.

Point Of View explores the viewpoints of women through different media — books, theatre, photography and films. During the previous Made By Women 2005 tour, in 2004, there were a range of films from Samira Makhmalbaf’s The Apple, to Jane Campion’s Sweetie. This festival was held in collaboration with the Federation Of Film Societies Of India, and went on a national tour of eight cities.

The gratifying reponse brought the Film Festivalto back, with Bishakha Datta as the festival director, for another national tour of eight cities during April and May 2005 - Mumbai, Delhi, Kolkata, Chennai, Bangalore, Thiruvananthapuram, Hyderabad and Pune.
