karin chien on abc news

Here's a brief but interesting ABC News segment that ran last week on Asian Americans in cinema—and the lack thereof—featuring the comments of feature film producer Karin Chien (The Motel, Undoing, Robot Stories): Why Aren't There Asian-American Stars? I find it really odd that ABC News would care enough to dedicate a segment to this topic, but hell yes, there it is. If you're going to have 2 minutes and 22 seconds to talk about Asian American cinema on national television, it's not a bad way of summing things up. Props to Karin, for bringing the plight of Asian American cinema to the mainstream, even ever-so-briefly...
