On the Importance of Personal Narratives
Through personal stories, Re-Present Media seeks to bring greater understanding of the wide range of the lived experiences of underrepresented communities. We explore the grey zones of social, political, geographic, and environmental issues.
As part of the United States of Asian American Festival, we will showcase four filmmakers, followed by in-depth dialogue and Q&A.
