Crazy Rich Asians
March 14, 2020 - 3:00 pm
In-person: 
Panelists include Lan Duong (USC), Josslyn Luckett (NYU), Melissa Phruksachart (Michigan), Viola Lasmana (USC), Oliver Wang (Cal State Long Beach); moderators Brian Hu, B. Ruby Rich.

The UCLA Film & Television Archive and the UCLA Asian American Studies Center are excited to welcome Film Quarterly for an afternoon conversation about the state of Asian Pacific American film and media in the last half century from the post-Civil Rights Era to post-CRA (Crazy Rich Asians).

Film Quarterly celebrates the 50th anniversary of the UCLA Asian American Studies Center and Visual Communications with a special dossier co-edited with scholar and curator Brian Hu. Hu and FQ’s B. Ruby Rich moderate this panel with FQ dossier contributors to consider the importance of marking this anniversary through analysis and history. The ongoing legacy of that origin moment 50 years ago continues to resonate, ever since its original explosion of Asian American creators and on-screen visibility first changed the nature of self-representation within independent media and mainstream culture.

Panelists include Lan Duong (USC), Josslyn Luckett (NYU), Melissa Phruksachart (Michigan), Viola Lasmana (USC) and Oliver Wang (Cal State Long Beach). The panel will be moderated by Brian Hu and B. Ruby Rich.
