We were nominated for a day-time Emmy award!
The Asian American Documentary Network (A-Doc) together with WORLD Channel and Center for Asian American Media (CAAM) have co-produced Asian American Stories of Resilience and Beyond for release in 2022, a series of 7 documentary shorts that move beyond the pandemic and reflect the complexities of AAPI experiences in this critical moment. While Asian Americans have faced a double pandemic of COVID-19 and anti-Asian racism, the rise of solidarity efforts within Asian American and other BIPOC communities gives us moments of joy, resilience, and hope as we rebuild our lives.
Our team is currently in production on a longer documentary about AAPI incarceration and refugee/immigrant criminal justice. If you would like to support please do so through our fiscal sponsor here:
