True story. When I was growing up there was nothing else I loved more than going to the movies. Anytime my mom or dad would take me to the theater, it was like Christmas. I sat through the Home Alone‘s, the Mrs. Doubtfire‘s, the Disney movies, etc. My time with them, and the big screen, was what ultimately drove the passion I have for this industry. Movies have and always will mean the world to me. And that’s why I’ve made it my goal to do whatever I can to make even the smallest impact on this industry I care about so much.Continue reading “Gold House and CAPE’s #OneOpen Initiative Kicks Off with ‘Eternals’”

Although Loving v. Virginia officially abolished all remaining anti-miscegenation laws in the United States in 1967, it really hasn’t been until recently where the portrayals of mixed race characters and interracial couples on the big screen have improved significantly. Within the last six months alone, several films have had either mixed race characters as the leads or interracial relationships as the central focus. An added dimension to some of them is that apart from some of the characters being of the younger generation, the focus wasn’t on their race(s). That didn’t, however, stop these films from acknowledging their backgrounds. While it’s good that films like Aquaman are out there that get really real about being mixed, not all mixed race protagonists need to go on a journey of self discovery to that extent.
Just in time for AAPI Heritage Month, a collective of AAPI creatives and leaders, including Bing Chen who I interviewed on the Southern Fried Asian podcast last year, known as Gold House have announced their second ever list of influential Asian and Asian American talent.
From actors and athletes to CEOs and political leaders, the A100 list demonstrates the role of the AAPI community in American society. Click here to check out the full list of 2019 honorees.
Back in October, when I interviewed Gold Open co-creator Bing Chen on the Southern Fried Asian podcast, he teased a new iteration of the movement established to promote groundbreaking Asian American films like Gook, Crazy Rich Asians, and Burning. This morning, they revealed what the next stage of Gold Open will look like. In addition to a partnership with AMC theaters to help “streamline group movie-going, theatre buyouts and bulk regular-price ticket purchasing through a ticket buying system,” the Gold Open system will expand and be applied to media from groups dubbed “the New Majority,” i.e., women, the African diaspora, Latinx communities, and LGBTQ+ artists.
