VINCENT WHO? (2009, 40 minutes) — In 1982, at the height of anti-Japanese sentiments, Vincent Chin was murdered in Detroit by two white autoworkers who said, “It’s because of you mother** that we’re out of work.” When the judged fined the killers a mere $3,000 and three years probation, Asian Americans around the country galvanized for the first time to form a real community and movement. “Vincent Who?” asks how far Asian Americans have come since then and how far they have yet to go.
