Our Name isn't Grace Lee

Our June member drive is live: protect this resource!
Right now, we need your help during our short June member drive to keep the local news you read here every day going. This has been a challenging year, but with your help, we can get one step closer to closing our budget gap. Today, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership.

IndieWire has some great coverage of the Los Angeles Film Festival. We're especially enamored with Grace Lee's posts as a filmmaker getting screened here, her hometown. The Grace Lee Project is part of the documentary competition and is all about women named Grace Lee, an incredibly standard name for Asian women. If you didn't catch it last night, you can view it tomorrow night at the Sunset 5.

Looking for other good Film Festival flicks? Film Stew has some suggestions.
