Director Statement

The author Peter N. Kiang states in his writing that “The process of defining who are Asian Americans is, in itself, a lesson in diversity and critical thinking with social, historical, and political dimensions. The term "Asian American" is preferable to "Oriental," which connotes rugs, spices, and other objects of western colonialism in Asia rather than people. The "Orient," after all, is a concept generated by the colonial experience. In contrast, the continent of Asia is an actual geographic location from which many people in the United States trace their origins.”

I believe that one of the most effective tools of visualizing a community is through the use of arts and crafts - and in my case, filmmaking. I aim to bring light to a community that is mostly invisible in the vast landscape of the United States. Growing up, like most of my peers of Asian decent, we didn’t have many Asian American heroes in mainstream media. I’ve dedicated my life and efforts to hopefully push that agenda so that our voices in our communities are not just heard, but respected and revered.
