Asian American Cinema

by Claudia Leung

As comprehensive a list as I could make of Asian American film. What makes a film Asian American? You tell me. If you think something is missing, let me know. I will likely put up films with Asian American characters, directors, actors and writers foremost. If the film has one Asian American character whose racial/ethnic identity is an important plot point, it will be considered (no, 16 Candles and The Hangover do NOT count). Enjoy and check out the titles on the list!
