2023 AAPI Month films at Doris Duke Theatre
- May 11, 12, 13 & 19. Tickets: $15. “Bad Axe” captures a closely knit Asian-American family living in a rural Michigan community as they fight to keep their American dream alive. As owners of a local prominent restaurant, they reckon with a global pandemic, racial tensions, and generational scars from Cambodia’s “killing fields.”
- May 12, 13, 14, & 18. Tickets: $15. “Nam June Paik: Moon is the Oldest TV” from first-time feature director Amanda Kim tells the remarkable story of Paik as a citizen of the world and trailblazing artist, who both saw the present and predicted the future with astonishing clairvoyance. With Steven Yeun reading Paik’s own written words—showcasing the artist’s strategic playfulness and immense creativity—Nam June Paik: Moon is the Oldest TV is a celebration of perhaps the most modern artist of all time. (Sundance Film Festival)
- May 21. This event is free but ticketed. “Beyond the Horizon: Celebrating 120 years of Korean Immigration”, a special program featuring two short films followed by a panel discussion with director Jinyoung Lee Won, Iggy Jang, Harry Kim, and Gary Pak. Moderated by Michelle Goodin.
