ECAASU at Yale – New Haven, CT
We have been invited to Yale University to screen as part of the annual ECAASU Conference – the East Coast Asian American Student Union. It is a cold February night as two hundred students gather in a theater to watch the film and talk. This particular audience is all about the connections…
“Did Sikhs think there would be an internment like in World War?”

“So how should our communities respond?” I ask Willie.
