Getting Reel with Deann Borshay Liem


Zoom Sat, Sep 12, 2020 1:00 PM


The Center for Asian American Media (CAAM) invites you to our next member event Getting Reel with Deann Borshay Liem on Saturday, September 12, 2020. This program is part of a year-long series of events celebrating CAAM’s 40th anniversary.

As we reflect on CAAM's impact to date and into the future, we are honored to present this conversation between CAAM Executive Director Stephen Gong and acclaimed filmmaker Deann Borshay Liem.

Deann’s work has focused on advancing more authentic representation in public media through supporting and sharing the untold stories of underrepresented communities. As a filmmaker, community leader, and our CAAM executive director (1993-1996), she lends a unique perspective from which we can examine CAAM’s legacy and impact on the future of Asian American storytelling.

This is your chance to learn more about Deann’s portfolio of groundbreaking documentaries and valuable insights on how her work has deeply affected the community.

In addition to the conversation, all participants will recieve a link to watch Deann's documentaries First Person Plural (2009), In the Matter of Cha Jung Hee (2010), and Memory of Forgotten War (2013)  for a limited time.

Current CAAM members receive free admission to this program. Tickets are $10 for non-members.
