SCREENING OF MS. PURPLE, MADISON’S ASIAN AMERICAN MEDIA SPOTLIGHT
October 5, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
USA | 2019 | DCP | 87 min.
Director: Justin Chon
Q&A with Producer Chris Dinh
This sophomore feature from Justin Chon (Gook, 2017) centers on Kasie, a Korean American young woman who struggles to care for her bedridden father while spending her nights working as a hostess at a Koreatown karaoke bar. When she finally turns to her estranged brother for help it seems like things might turn around, but eventually they must both deal with their family’s complicated past. The film beautifully and sensitively illuminates some of the shadowy corners of Los Angeles that are often hidden from view.
