Boston Asian American Film Festival

OCT 19-22 | The 9th annual Boston Asian American Film Festival (BAAFF), a production of the Asian American Resource Workshop (AARW), plans to showcase a provocative and entertaining program of independent cinema highlighting recent, significant works by and/or about Asian Americans and the Asian diaspora. This year, BAAFF's theme is Liberty & Justice, which presents a showcase of inspiring stories about the challenges and victories of self-empowerment and civic responsibility as individuals and community leaders; especially relevant in our changing world—locally, nationally, and globally. The anchor films for the festival commemorates the 135th anniversary of the passing of The Chinese Exclusion Act of 1882—THE JADE PENDANT; 75th anniversary of the signing of Executive Order 9066, that led to the mass incarceration of Americans of Japanese descent in 1942—RESISTANCE AT TULE LAKE; and the 25th anniversary of the L.A. Uprising following the Rodney King verdict in 1992—GOOK.
