Asian Movie Pulse | Documentary Review: The Race Epidemic (2021) by Tony Shyu
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.
