Sneak Peek and Conversation with
Renee Tajima-Peña and Helen Zia 


Sunday, March 8 at 3pm-5:30pm 
Emerson Paramount Center | 559 Washington St, Downtown Crossing

Asian American Studies celebrates 50 years this year. WHO KILLED VINCENT CHIN? is a classic film that documents the rising of a community in solidarity against an injustice. Join us for a special conversation with Co-Director Renee Tajima-Peña (UCLA) and Activist/Author Helen Zia moderated by Prof. Takeo Rivera (BU).

WHO KILLED VINCENT CHIN? - Detroit 1982, Vincent Chin was brutally beaten with a baseball bat on the night of his bachelor party by two unemployed auto workers, who eventually avoided jail time and received probation and a fine as their punishment. The attack and lenient sentence ignited a movement of protest and activism never before seen within the Asian American community. The Academy Award-nominated documentary, WHO KILLED VINCENT CHIN?, probes the implications surrounding the murder and the aftermath that united Asian Americans seeking social justice, many of which still permeate American society today.

Following the film is a sneak-peek of the upcoming PBS docuseries ASIAN AMERICANS, and a post-screening Q&A with director
 Renee Tajima-Peña and Helen Zia; moderated By Takeo Rivera.

Asian Americans & Pacific Islanders have long been making waves in all aspects of American life, but our stories have often been lost in general U.S. discourse. “Short Waves: Stories Shaping Our Community,” hopes to bring light to these experiences through locally made, community driven short films about the Asian American experience and community. BAAFF welcomes submissions from the New England region.
