The Slanted Screen: Asian Men In Film & Television
Written, directed and produced by Jeff Adachi

From silent film star Sessue Hayakawa to Harold & Kumar Go to Whitecastle, the Slanted Screen examines portrayals of Asian men in film and television, and how a new generation of filmmakers are re-defining age-old stereotypes. The film includes interviews with actors Mako, Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa, Jason Scott Lee, James Shigeta, Dustin Nguyen, Phillip Rhee, Will Yun Lee, Tzi Ma, comedian Bobby Lee, producer Terence Chang, casting director Heidi Levitt, writer Frank Chin, and directors Gene Cajayon and Eric Byler. East West Players' artistic director Tim Dang and media experts Professor Darrell Hamamoto and Lois Salisbury also provided their insights.
