MIND THE GAP: EVOLUTION OF ASIAN AMERICAN WOMEN’S ROLES ON SCREEN

Our annual roundtable series, Evolution of Roles On Screen for Historically Excluded Communities, began in 2020 with Evolution of Black Women’s Roles Onscreen and continued in 2021 with Evolution of Latina Roles Onscreen. This year’s pre-recorded conversation will be with film professionals in a variety of different creative roles, both behind the scenes and in front of the camera, and will explore the state of representation for Asian American women in film. The speakers will discuss how representation in Hollywood and beyond has evolved for Asian American women, and speak to their own experience navigating the industry.
