Filmmaker Jon M. Chu joins David L. Eng at The Stephen A. Levin Family Dean’s Forum (School of Arts & Sciences) to talk about artistic passion and the power of representation. Chu’s blockbuster Crazy Rich Asians, the first film by a major Hollywood studio to feature an all-Asian cast in more than 25 years, is a visual feast that helps to counter racial animus at a time when violence against AAPI communities is on the rise. He followed it with his adaptation of Lin-Manuel Miranda’s musical In the Heights, and is in pre-production on Wicked.
