Five Asian American Documentaries Premiere on PBS May 2016, Presented by CAAM

May is officially Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month. In celebration of the month, PBS will be premiering five Asian American documentaries during the month of May, presented by the Center for Asian American Media (CAAM). The documentaries are:


The films are supported or co-produced by CAAM, with funding from the Corporation for Public Broadcasting. My favorite CAAM produced documentary is Patsy Mink: Ahead of the Majority – that film really inspired me and quite liked Mr. Cao Goes to Washington and the related A Village Called Versailles.

I really like documentaries, and if I won the lottery, I’d probably spend a good portion of my time being a documentary filmmaker – probably making films of Asian Americans in public office or running for public office.
