This weekend’s cover story in Entertainment Weekly features Constance Wu and Henry Golding from next year’s can’t-miss rom-com Crazy Rich Asians. Since Asian Americans on the cover of EW is so rare, we brought in the story’s author, Shirley Li, to talk about her behind-the-scenes look at the movie all of Asian America is pinning its hopes and dreams on (no pressure, Jon Chu!)
I’ve been waiting for over a year to say this since I first saw it at the LA Asian Film Festival last May:
The Tiger Hunter is one of the most delightful comedies I’ve seen in quite some time. It’s also one of the best films about the Asian immigrant experience, one that doesn’t mock or ridicule the immigrants but rather honors them for the sacrifices they made to achieve the American dream. These are some mighty high praises and now expectations but I’ll go into detail why this charming indie film starring Danny Pudi and Karen David deserves your attention after a brief synopsis of what this film is all about:
This week on Southern Fried Asian, Keith talks to writer, editor, journalist, and Houston-native Melissa Hung about Hurricane Harvey and the resilience of her city.
On this week’s episode of Southern Fried Asian, Keith talks to spoken word and hip-hop artist G Yamazawa, whose debut album, Shouts to Durham, and breakthrough single/video “North Cack” have taken the internet by storm.
