Hey all, if you missed the ABC News primetime special Soul of a Nation—about the rise of Asian Americans in Hollywood, featuring me Rebecca Sun 孫洪美 Wajahat Ali Nancy Wang Yuen, and a host of stars—it’s on @Hulu now. Check it out here!
Had a great time watching the classic Asian America film #FlowerDrumSong and reflecting on its groundbreaking and stereotyped contributions with Masami Moriya for Strong Asian Lead on the rooftop in DTLA!
Not me crying my eyes out watching the cast of #EEAAO , Nancy Wang Yuen and Wajahat Ali commenting on how far we’ve come in Hollywood.
I wanna see Dr. Nancy & Waj on a discussion panel together. I don’t even care what they talk about.
If you want to see Michelle Yeoh and Ke Huy Quan get REAL about their journey and hear some commentary from me, stream #NewFaceOfHollywood , a Soul of a Nation special presentation on Hulu now! hulu.com/series/the-new…
Thank you again to Nancy Wang Yuen for sharing her story w/me about leaving academia as a WOC. Even after earning full professorship, she left bc she trusted that the best was yet to come. There's immense power in walking away & reclaiming ourselves outside of these institutions.
Join me tonight (5/26) for a special presentation of #NewFaceofHollywood in the Emmy®-Award winning “Soul of a Nation' for #AAPIHeritageMonth . Here I introduce Adele Lim, co-screenwriter of #CrazyRichAsians and director of upcoming #JoyRide . Airs 8/7c on ABC, next day on Hulu.
I co-created this show! I'm thrilled about the green light and eager to get back to work when the WGA gets a fair contract. An honor and pleasure to make television with Ken Woodruff, Daniel Dae Kim, 3AD, and BOOM! Studios.
The #AAPI tag over at Rotten Tomatoes editorials is looking pretty awesome right now, in case you haven’t noticed! Works from yours truly, Nancy Wang Yuen (the latest one), Fred Topel #FightforFreelancers #COVIDisntover & more await you 🎉🎉🎉
I wrote about Asian women trailblazing filmmakers for Rotten Tomatoes, including Marion Wong, who made the first AsAm feature in 1916, Renee Tajima-Peña, Mira Nair, Karyn Kusama, Alice Wu 伍思薇, Grace Lee, So Yong Kim, Jennifer Yuh Nelson, geeta v. patel & more! editorial.rottentomatoes.com/article/10-asi…
