Description

Festival of Cinema NYC Presents: Race, Sex & Hold the Mayo! A Special Presentation by The Asian American Film Lab

Can comedy be used to make us laugh at racism? Sexism? Xenophobia? The Film Lab thinks it will not only do that but raise awareness about important issues in an easy, refreshing way! Their recent gender bias comedy series enjoyed screenings, readings and shout out's from CBS (read more here and here) and will now screen at Festival of Cinema NYC, along with their series, “SOS,” a series of micro-comedy sketches.

Come prepared to laugh, learn and have an open dialogue! The fun is part of a larger event about Film Lab’s use of the power of entertainment media to effectuate positive social change and raise awareness about important societal issues. The screenings will be followed by a panel addressing the effectiveness of entertainment - particularly comedy - in addressing societal issues like gender bias and xenophobia. Panelists include TV network representatives and Film Lab management, along with cast and crew.

Starring Jennifer Betit Yen, Robert McKay, Stephin Lin, Tim Scanlin, Joe Tex, Betty Chiao, Nina Daniels, and Ray Lanuza. Directed by Sean Scanlin, Jennifer Betit Yen and Johnny Tsang.
