Film Screening: FREE CHOL SOO LEE + Q&A

An official selection at this year’s Sundance Film Festival, FREE CHOL SOO LEE chronicles the gripping true story of Chol Soo Lee, a legendary figure in the Asian American community. Co-presented with the DC Asian Pacific American Film Festival.

A Korean immigrant misidentified as Chinese and wrongly convicted of murder in San Francisco in 1974, who became a rallying cry for a pan-Asian American political movement. It is a moving, inspiring tale of grassroots Asian American activism, depicting the strength of a diverse community as it unites behind a common symbolic cause and ultimately achieves its goal. "A powerful indictment of systemic racism and the criminal justice system." – Chicago Reader.
