Feb 22, 2021

Welcome to Episode 14! There’s been a definite increase in Asian American filmmakers in the last few years, but it didn’t just happen overnight. There have been some notable films and TV shows that led up to the progress in the last few years. Gen & Ted Lai provide a brief history of Asian American filmmakers and notable movies in the first segment. The second segment is a special interview with our guest Diane Paragas, the writer, director, producer of the award winning film Yellow Rose. Diane was gracious enough to come and talk to us about Yellow Rose and the progress in Hollywood for more diverse stories of the Asian American experience. If you haven’t seen Yellow Rose yet, then you’ll want to after hearing this interview! It's available on multiple streaming platforms.
