The community is invited to attend June 24 screenings of two critically acclaimed Asian American films from Noon to 3 p.m. in the Sheraton Waikiki's O'ahu and Waialua Rooms.
"The Slanted Screen," a one-hour documentary by Jeff Adachi, shows how Asian American men have been portrayed in film and television. "An Untold Triumph," a documentary narrated by actor Lou Diamond Phillips, tells the story of the more than 7,000 Filipino immigrants and sons of immigrants who demanded the right to serve in the U.S. Army during World War II, despite being classified as immigrant aliens during a time of strong anti-Asian sentiment.
The screenings are part of the 2006 national convention of the Asian American Journalists Association national convention.
