The Golden Screen: The Movies That Made Asian America

Item # 152221.

By Jeff Yang. Foreword by Michelle Yeoh. Afterword by Jon M. Chu.  

In 2018, the critical and financial success of Crazy Rich Asians  ignited new fires in Hollywood to create and back Asian-centric stories.  Since then, the number of movies featuring Asian Americans, either in  front or behind the camera, has boomed and ushered in a new era of  film making. But many films, like The Joy Luck Club in 1993, paved the way for Asian American-led films before Crazy Rich Asians and to today. The Golden Screen is an in-depth look at those films, and the factors that played into their success.

The Golden Screen includes  commentary and conversations from Hollywood's most visible faces, such  as Simu Liu, Lulu Wang, Daniel Dae Kim, Janet Yang, Ronny Chieng, Alice Wu, and Ken Jeong. See the movies that inspired today's modern stars to  enter movie-making, and how they're paying it forward to the next wave of  creators.

Featuring beautiful, original artwork from nine  esteemed Asian illustrators, including: Toma Nguyen, barbarian flower,  Jun Cen, Cryssy Cheung, Cliff Chiang, Yu-Ming Huang, JiYeun Kang, Ashraf  Omar, and Zi Xu.

Hardbound: 304 pp.
