Fourteen hundred people filled the historic Castro Theater eager to see the highly anticipated West Coast premiere of THE CHINESE EXCLUSION ACT at CAAMFest 2017, CAAM’s annual festival celebration Asian American film, music and food on Sunday, March 19, 2017 at the historic Castro Theater in San Francisco. We were thrilled to have in attendance Directors Ric Burns and Li-Shin Yu, Producer Robin Espinola, many of the cast and crew, Supervisor Jane Kim and journalist MC Robert Handa, with other special guests.
Watch a video of the engaging Q&A with cast and crew, moderated by CAAM Executive Director Stephen Gong here.
