The Donut King - Indie Lens PopUp FREE Screening and Discussion Hosted by NMPBS Society of Professional Journalists Rio Grande Chapter

About this Event

Join NMPBS Society of Professional Journalists Rio Grande Chapter for a screening followed by a discussion led by Megan Kamerick and Jerry Redfern.

The Donut King is Ted Ngoy’s rags-to-riches story of a refugee escaping Cambodia, arriving in America in 1975, and building an unlikely multimillion-dollar empire baking America’s favorite pastry, the donut. Ngoy sponsored hundreds of visas for incoming refugees and helped them get on their feet by teaching them the ways of the donut business. By 1979, he was living the American Dream—but a great rise often comes with a great fall. The Donut King is a tale of hard knocks, redemption, wealth, survival, risk, and donuts.

Following the film, please join us for a discussion with José Nuñez, producer and Mayly Tao, who appears in the film..
