Asian American Stories of Resilience and Beyond: AAPI Filmmakers Explore Identity Through Family and Community

When May 3, 2022 2:35 PM to June 7, 2022 3:35 PM
Where WPSU

To commemorate Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month, an exclusive, digital-first series will turn the lens on AAPI filmmakers by providing an intimate look into stories often told but rarely heard. Asian American Stories of Resilience and Beyond features seven short films by both emerging and established creators, all focusing on the theme of resilience. Each filmmaker, with the guidance of an accomplished industry mentor, shines a light on moments, big and small, that demonstrate the diversity of the AAPI community. Within the seven films, we meet a Filipino American woman on a journey to reconnect with her father after being separated by COVID-19; the child of Vietnamese refugees who reflects on the closure of their mother’s nail salon; young Black, Indonesian American adults from Minneapolis whose dual identities shape their response to the killing of George Floyd and Breonna Taylor; and more. Every Tuesday beginning May 3rd through June 7th.
