New work from Philippines, China, Japan, Thailand, Taiwan, South Korea, Turkey puts superheroes, organized crime, migrants and marriage under the microscope.

Dubai, UAE; December 8, 2010: From martial arts to marriage and organized crime to beekeeping, the 10 action, drama and comedy films in the 2010 Dubai International Film Festival's Cinema of AsiaAfrica section include some of the most dazzling stories to emerge from the two continents in recent years.

Headlining the segment this year is the John Woo and Chao-Bin Su-directed martial arts extravaganza Reign of Assassins, starring Michelle Yeoh, Kelly Lin and Barbie Hsu. The epic martial arts action thriller, set in ancient China and focused on a skilled assassin and the search for the remains of a mystical Buddhist monk, will make its Middle East premiere at the Madinat Arena on Friday, December 17, as DIFF red carpet gala screening.

The DIFF Cinema of AsiaAfrica line-up this year includes seven Middle East premieres and three films never screened in the Gulf nations, from China, the Philippines, Japan, Thailand, South Korea, Turkey and South Africa.
