“The Asian American community are not victims in this story. I didn’t want to show a community that’s victimized, even though what’s been happening is horrific. But the Asian American community [has] been here fighting for their civil rights for a very, very long time.” —Titi Yu, director of “Rising Against Asian Hate”
