Meet the Makers: First Vote
With only a few weeks away from the 2020 presidential election, WORLD Channel and Asian American Pacific Islander film festivals across the country present a live screening of director Yi Chen's film, FIRST VOTE. With unparalleled access to a diverse cross-section of politically engaged Chinese Americans, the character-driven documentary weaves stories from the presidential election of 2016 to the 2018 midterms, exploring the intersection of immigration, voting rights, and racial justice.
