Release/Clip: New Film "Vincent Who?" - Chicago April 19

We got this release in about a new film about the murder of Vincent Chin, featuring past Asian-American Village columnists Helen Zia and Frank Wu, among others. We congratulate them, the filmmakers, and the group Asian Pacific Americans for Progress for their efforts in keeping this (sadly still-relevant) story alive. -- Editors

Asian Pacific Americans for Progress and Tony Lam Films present a new film


APAP is proud to announce our first film, a documentary on the murder of Vincent Chin and the impact the historic case has had on the Asian American community.

A follow-up to our National Townhall on Hate Crimes last year, the film features such leading figures as Helen Zia (journalist and leading lawyer during the case), Stewart Kwoh (Executive Director, Asian Pacific American Law Caucus), Frank Wu (Dean, Wayne State Law School), Renee Tajima Pena (Director, "Who Killed Vincent Chin?"), Lisa Ling (journalist), Judy Chu (Chair, California Board of Equalization), Mike Eng (Assemblymember, California State Assembly), Eric Nakamura (Publisher, Giant Robot Magazine) and many more.

Please join the film's Facebook group and invite your friends to join as well.

If you're in Chicago, the film will be screened during the upcoming Asian American Film Showcase on Saturday, April 19th at 5:30 PM at the Siskel Center. This will be a special screening with the director and a Q&A.

Thanks and keep spreading the word!
