CAAMFest 2021 - The Donut King with Director Alice Gu

Episode Summary

A CAAMFest conversation with director Alice Gu about her documentary The Donut King.

Episode Notes

We're covering another amazing documentary at the Center for Asian American Media (CAAM) Festival, The Donut King! The doc follows the life of Ted Ngoy, a Cambodian refugee who lived through both the rise and the fall of the American Dream - by way of donut. We chat with director Alice Gu about how the story kept progressing into so much more,  why it was important to add historical context about the genocide in Cambodia, and how hard she worked to get Wu Tang Clan to approve the use of their song. This is a great documentary that really takes you for a ride!
