Panel Discussion

Ever wondered where all the Asian American Women Filmmakers are? Well this is your chance to meet some of them and see their amazing work! Come to the panel on April 17th and watch the exclusive previews of the documentary A- Town Boyz and Hey Yun – the Web Series, while also hearing the filmmakers, Eunice Lau, Grace Jung, and Hye Yun Park, talk about the behind the scenes process and their experiences in the industry!

As A-Town Boyz is in post-production phase and needs all the help it can get to make it to the big screen, there’s a heavily suggested (but not compulsory) donation of $5 (or more or less)! You can donate either at the door or online at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/asian-women-filmmakers-panel-tickets-16369269927

A-Town Boyz is a feature-length documentary about the growing up experiences of Asian American men in Atlanta, Georgia, and the lure of gang life for youths who struggle to integrate into society. It gives a rare insight into the lives of second generation Asian American immigrants who do not fit the model minority myth and who struggle with lack of opportunities and a life of crime. Shot in an observational style by the multi award-winning director Eunice Lau, and executive produced by Spike Lee, this is a story of the American Dream derailed.

Hey Yun is a comedic webseries about a thirty something artist living in Brooklyn. Broke and chunky, she toddles through New York City with bursts of rage and strange projects. The show focuses on filmmaker Hye Yun Park’s exasperating experiences with life and race.
