Our Name isn't Grace Lee

Before you
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

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.
