Winter Project

Phase I: Asian and Asian American Experience: Through Film and Personal Narrative

Crazy Rich Asians, The Joy Luck Club, The Farewell, Harold and Kumar, are just some of Hollywood’s big name films attempting to portray an Asian experience narrative. When Crazy Rich Asians came out, its all Asian cast allowed Asians to feel excited as Asian faces are finally seen on Hollywood screens. Of course, Crazy Rich Asians does not encompass the experiences of Asians and Asian Americans. During the winter, members Nyaari Kothiya, Jason Le, and Anna Sakamoto chose to explore other films to understand how the story of Asians and Asian Americans are told through film. In watching these films, these principal investigators tied their own personal experiences to these films focusing on themes of the American Dream, Family, the Model Minority Myth, Stigma, Feeling Out of Place, and Transition.
