AAIFF ’15 IN FLUSHING: OFF THE MENU: ASIAN AMERICA (FREE!)
Directed by Grace Lee
From the stories about how food is prepared to the traditions that are passed on from generation to generation, people and food have always had a close relationship. AAIFF will feature Grace Lee’s OFF THE MENU: ASIAN AMERICA, a film that explores how we define “Asian America” — through that thing that is near and dear to everyone, food. OFF THE MENU is a documentary that travels from the Gulf Coast of Texas to the heartland of Wisconsin to New York’s Lower East Side and delves into a wealth of stories, traditions, and unexpected characters that explore what it means to be Asian American today.
