Asian Pacific American Heritage Month Film

Join us on Thursday May 28th at 7:00pm at Arlington Central Library Auditorium (map) for an Asian Pacific American Heritage Month Film/Meet the Producer: "Vincent Who?"

Film Debut in Virginia: "Vincent Who?"

Following the Film a Q&A Session will be hosted with producer Curtis Chin.

The film "Vincent Who?" retells the events surrounding the death of Vincent Chin, a Chinese American draftsman who was beaten to death by two white autoworkers in Michigan. After a judge sentenced the two to probation and a $3,000 fine, Chin’s case became a rallying point for the Asian-American community. Producer Curtis Chin will be on hand to discuss the film. This event is co-sponsored with the Organization of Chinese Americans of Northern Virginia. For more information please call: 703/228-6331 or vmccaffery@arlingtonva.us.
