Next Shark | CAAMFest Premieres ‘The Race Epidemic’ Documentary Featuring Notable Asian American Politicians
Award-winning screenwriter and director Tony Shyu developed a documentary that dives deep into the history of America’s AAPI community through storytelling and interviews with prominent Asian American politicians.
We’re celebrating Asian American history at the Center for Asian American Media (CAAM) Festival, this time focusing on a documentary called The Race Epidemic. The history of racism against Asian Americans is something that has been hidden and erased from our history books, making a documentary like this more important than ever in this moment.
California Attorney General Rob Bonta will be featured in a documentary that is airing Thursday at the Center for Asian American Media Film Festival. The documentary, titled “The Race Epidemic,” tells the story of Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders “and their unique history in the broader context of racism in America,” according to a statement released about the film.
Imprenta公司CEO Ronald Wong與他的朋友、電影導演Tony Shyu幾年前開始拍攝一部以亞裔政治人物為主要角色的紀錄片。誰也沒有想到，2020年世界發生了天翻地覆的變化。影片的命運，隨著情勢而變化。影片採訪了江俊輝、趙美心、羅達倫、邱信福、Rob Bonta等人。
Whether they’re been shoved to the ground or told to “go back where you came from,” Asian Americans have long felt the sting of racism. Now a documentary called “The Race Epidemic” is putting the history of Asian American Pacific Islander discrimination into context.
The program of the CAAMFest included also the documentary „The Race Epidemic“ by Tony Shyu. His film is inspired by the newly experienced hostility again Asian-Americans in the US. Shyu created a film that gives a lot of background on Asian immigration in the USA. It also tries to understand why, with the outbreak of the Corona virus, the opinion on Asian-Americans shifted. Why did the society use them as scapegoats for their frustration.
