“I feel that there are narratives of the Filipino experience that tend to get told a lot. I think those are important, but I think especially for this season, we are really trying to dive a little bit deeper. It’s not just about being a Filipino person, it’s really about being a person and finding your place in the world.”
Join the Center for Asian American Media (CAAM), San Francisco Public Library (SFPL), and Angel City Press on Sunday, October 20, 2019 at the launch of Academy Award®-nominated filmmaker Arthur Dong’s new book Hollywood Chinese: The Chinese in American Feature Films.

This program is free, though we request that all guests RSVP by Thursday, October 17, 2019. Seats are on a first-come, first-served basis.
