Description
USA | 94 min | NR | Dir. Justin Chon Eli and Daniel, two Korean American brothers, own a struggling shoe store and have an unlikely friendship with Kamilla, a street wise 11-year-old African American girl. "Justin Chon’s movie is praiseworthy, from its beautiful cinematography (by Ante Cheng in her feature debut) to its take on infamous events from a fresh perspective." - Stephanie Murphy (Washington Post) The  Hyphenated-Americans Film Festival  will feature 11 films about Americans with intersecting identities informing their unique experiences of being American. The films will highlight that being American is being a hyphenated-American. This film festival is a response to the current political moment and celebrates the diversity vital to the American experience. This festival has films ranging from documentaries and dramas to a comedy special. This event is intended for UW-Madison students, faculty, staff and Union members and guests.
