Happy Mid-Autumn Festival folks.  To those who are celebrating, try not to overindulge in mooncake madness.  This week we touch briefly on the two looming holidays (National Day – China and Mid-Autumn for Asia). Due to a lack of new screenings, the show this weeks East Screen segment will be modified to feature a discussion of some October film releases from China.
