Asian American Native Hawaiian Pacific Islander (AANHPI) Heritage Month, also known as Asian American Pacific Islander (AAPI) Heritage Month, is a time to recognize and celebrate the cultural and historical contributions of Asian Americans, Native Hawaiians and Pacific Islanders.

To recognize AANHPI heritage month within our Valencia College community, you’re invited to a virtual film screening of “The Slanted Screen.”

AANHPI Heritage Month Virtual Film Screening: The Slanted Screen
Date: Thursday, 
May 19, 2022
Time: 1 to 2:30 p.m.
Location: Zoom  

From silent film star Sessue Hayakawa to “Harold and Kumar Go to Whitecastle,” “The Slanted Screen” explores the portrayals of Asian men in American cinema, chronicling the experiences of actors who have had to struggle against ethnic stereotyping and limiting roles. The film presents a critical examination of Hollywood’s image-making machine through a fascinating parade of 50 film clips spanning a century.

Winner of the Best Short Documentary award at the NY International Independent Film and Video film festival, “The Slanted Screen” envisions a new, exciting future in the entertainment industry, where the diversity of our culture and society is fully recognized and represented.

Jed Broitman, professor, humanities, who teaches about motion pictures, will be facilitating engaging and thought-provoking discussion at the film screening event.

All are welcome to join.
