About the book:

Since 2018, the success of Crazy Rich Asians ignited new fires in Hollywood to create Asian-centric stories and usher in a new era of filmmaking. But many films, like  he Joy Luck Club in 1993, paved the way for Asian American–led films before Crazy Rich Asians and to today. The Golden Screen takes an in-depth look at those films and reaffirms the importance of the Asian American film canon in an increasingly diverse Hollywood. The book includes commentary from Simu Liu, Lulu Wang, Daniel Dae Kim, Janet Yang, Ronny Chieng, Alice Wu, and Ken Jeong; original artwork from Toma Nguyen, barbarian flower, Jun Cen, Cryssy Cheung, Cliff Chiang, Yu-Ming Huang, JiYeun Kang, Ashraf Omar, and Zi Xu; and features over 100 photographs.
