Southeast Asian Americans are an artistic force to be reckoned with in this collection of narrative and documentary shorts. Tales of perseverance, grit and forgiveness show us the diversity of what the road of recovery from imperialism can look like. From a refugee in Ghost Mountain recalling his past to the contemporary challenges with ICE covered in Keep Saray Home, this program highlights Southeast Asian Americans as a complex, hard-won identity.


Co-presented by Khmer Health Board Seattle
