27th San Francisco International Asian American Film Festival

The 27th San Francisco International Asian American Film Festival is starting this week, from March 12th to the 22nd, and the San Francisco Chronicle does a preview and reviews some of films; I have attended the film festival almost every year I’ve lived in the Bay Area and the films have been fantastic overall.

I’ve already been to a sneak preview of Patsy Mink: Ahead of the Majority about former Congresswoman Patsy Mink, the first woman of color to ever be elected to Congress and co-authored Title IX. If anyone is interested in politics and the topic of Asian Americans running for public office, I highly recommend you to see this film — I was overwhelmed and inspired by her efforts to overcome societal gender and ethnic barriers.

Thanks for rating this! Now tell the world how you feel - .
