Sat, May 20, 2023 • Chicago Cultural Center
Academy Award nominated filmmaker Renee Tajima-Peña shared insights about her creative process during this free masterclass. Tajima-Peña drew on her extensive experience as a documentary filmmaker, which spans from co-directing the classic, newly restored "Who Killed Vincent Chin?" to her work as series producer/showrunner for PBS' acclaimed five-part series "Asian Americans." An engaging and high-energy presenter, Tajima-Peña will emphasize how to find one's story as a person from an underrepresented community, be they AAPI, BIPOC, women, LGBTQIA+ or persons with a disability. Open to filmmakers, educators, students and anyone with a story to tell!
