Episode 9: Lights, CAAMera, Representation!
Watching The Farewell this summer had us all crying...and starting conversations about what we say and don’t say to our families. Elsa talks to two good friends, Masashi Niwano and Czarina Garcia, from CAAM (Center for Asian American Media) about their experiences seeing (and not seeing) themselves on the screen growing up, running one of the largest AAPI film festivals year to year, and watching The Farewell only to immediately run out and call their grandparents. Long and Elsa also have very different reactions to The Farewell, and they check in with each other on memory and history. There’s a lot here, so let’s dive in!
