WORLD PREMIERE Using his camera as a “weapon against injustice,” Chinese-American photographer Corky Lee brought art and politics together through his decades-long documentation of the Asian American experience. The Queens, NY native captured all aspects of the AAPI experience, from Lunar New Year to street protests, from Pakistani Independence Day to Diwali and more, uplifting his audience with striking images and empowering generations cultural pride. Armed with 19 years of footage of Corky in action, director Jennifer Takaki honors this unsung hometown hero in this beautiful tribute. – Karen McMullen

The first screening will be followed by a Q&A with Jennifer Takaki, George Hirose, Lily M. Fan, Linda Hattendorf, Linda Lew Woo, and moderated by Ava Chin, author of the forthcoming nonfiction book MOTT STREET (Penguin Press, April 2023), about four generations of her family in NY’s Chinatown.
