KollabCast Episode 90 – Telling Our Stories Right w/ James Yi & Alex Chi

by on , updated

This week we welcome James Yi and Alex Chi, two producers for the upcoming film about the 1992 LA riots GOOK, to the KollabCast! This episode we discuss family road trips, drill down on Asian representation, talk remakes, and celebrate getting our Kollaboration panel onto the SXSW 2017 program! We also chat to our guests about their film project, and the importance of telling the often forgotten Korean-American perspective during the LA Riots.
