6:15-6:25pm: Tribute by Corey Tong and John Woo

6:25-6:40pm: Screening of THE RIDE 

6:40-7:40pm: Screening of THE SLANTED SCREEN


THE RIDE (Documentary, 15min, 2017)

The Ride is a short film that takes viewers on a personal and intense ride through the underbelly of the criminal injustice system, seen through the eyes of SF Public Defender Jeff Adachi, who is one of the nation’s few elected public defenders.

THE SLANTED SCREEN (Documentary, 60min, 2006)

Hollywood has a long tradition of cultural prejudice, particularly when it comes to depicting Asian peoples. For Asian actors, only limited roles are available, and they are often pigeonholed into depicting ethnic stereotypes. The struggle against these stereotypes, as well as the dilemmas facing actors forced to succumb to them, are explored through interviews with Asian actors and filmmakers and in a series of archival film clips covering a century of American film.
