A Southeast Asian’s Guide to the 30th CAAM Film Festival

For all my SEA brothers and sisters out there looking to support some movies during the Center for Asian American Media’s film festival going on from March 8-18, I have my top 3 picked out for your convenience. One is about BcB favorite Anh Joseph Cao’s journey from getting elected to the House, repping NOLA, and heading up to DC. The appropriately named Mr. Cao Goes to Washington. The second is a b-boy movie called Among B-Boys (you know BcB likes them b-boys and b-girls) about the intersection between the Hmong community and the world of b-boying. Seriously, is there any other topic better than that? The last is The Crumbles, a movie about an indie rock band that includes, without exaggeration, one of the most beautiful Vietnamese American actresses I have ever seen, Teresa Michelle Lee.

Peep the trailers here:

  1. Thank you for these! Was wondering if you had a chance to check out “Bang Bang,” “Catch,” ?

  3. Not to Crumbles, but yes to Mr. Cao Goes to Washington thanks to this recommendation! That and I got the chance to see Village Called Versailles – definitely respect Mr. Chiang’s bringing to light issues faced by the Vietnamese American community.
