Almost Naked has been awarded a 2008 Manhattan Community Arts grant. This is my second year of winning this grant. Last year, I received this grant award for my series Concubines of New York, a documentary project of Chinese opera in New York City. The grant helped me tremendously on creating and post-production of the project, Concubines of New York has already been collected and published in China. Manhattan Community Arts grant is funded by Lower Manhattan Cultural Council and New York City department of Cultural Affairs. The 2009 application for this grant is due Jan. 22, 2008.
