The Slanted Screen, a Film by Jeff Adachi

Destroy & Rebuild
RECOMMENDED. Re-writing the script for Asian-American males.
Single Asian Male
RECOMMENDED. Undiluted bile and sarcasm from the bottom of their naseous stomachs. AMR endorses SAM because we don't believe in the censorship Asian male self-expression in the name of good first impressions - all the voices of Asian American men must be heard.
RECOMMENDED. From their website: Asian Americans have never been seen as a driving force in entertainment and have long been the underdog in mainstream visibility. But it seems times are finally changing. With the popularity of the Internet, Asian American talents have a platform on which to prove again and again that they have what it takes to compete with the big boys in the entertainment industry.
Itâ€™s our time to shine folks, so clear that kung-fu fighting, math battling, ching-chong speaking, small-eyed nerd out of your head and whip out of a clean slate, because weâ€™re about to bring you the best Asian American talent in the U.S. of A.
New America Media
Dedicated to bringing the voices of the marginalized - ethnic minorities, immigrants, young people, elderly - into the national discourse.
For our sons. For our daughters. For our future. By Asian-American fathers.
Asian American Princess
Showing solidarity with Asian-American women, handbags and all.
Drama Beans: Deconstructing K-Dramas & K-Pop Culture
We enjoy the intellectual angle (and the occasional social commentary) the owner of DramaBeans takes toward Korean pop culture. This is a refreshing change from the vacuous obsession with plastic surgery, looks (over talent), 'idol' groups/girl bands that seems to be the de rigueur trend amongst Korean pop culture fans.
From Monument to Masses
Our influences are typically literary or visual - but these guys have influenced us sonically. Amazing experimental post-rock.
