A special tribute double feature screening of the films Who Killed Vincent Chin? by Christine Choy and Vincent Who? by Curtis Chin will immediately follow the 2pm Hate Crimes Awareness workshop. 


In 1982, Chinese-American Vincent Chin, an automotive engineer, was brutally murdered by two assembly line workers, who blamed his ethnicity for their job loss. The shocking turn of events, including a nonsensical trial outcome opened many people's eyes to the racism and injustice of the American court system. Academy Award nominated Who Killed Vincent Chin? documents the rallies and protests that ultimately became a defining moment forever changing the Asian American community. Vincent Who? is a look at our community twenty five year's later. This new film by Tony Lam and Curtis Chin examines the effects (or crushing lack there of) of the Vincent Chin tragedy within the younger Asian American generations and the importance of keeping the memory of Mr. Chin alive. 


We are pleased to screen this double feature as our Festival Opening Event with a community discussion with the directors of the respective films during a Free Community Dinner Reception immediately following the films.
