Valerie Soe has created nearly two dozen experimental and documentary films that look at social and political concerns such as racism, representation, and the histories of Asians living in the United States. In this presentation, Soe will screen a selection of her short documentary films and talk about her filmmaking process and how her work intersects with issues in the Asian American community. As Robyn Magalit Rodriguez and Diane C. Fujino note, "Both study and struggle are necessary and intertwined components in our collective work toward creating emancipatory futures." This presentation explores the uses of creative praxis in working towards empowerment, liberation, and social justice.
