After a 4-year hiatus, Bold Asian American Images is back at Aurora! The 12th installment of this program showcases an eclectic mix of short films curated by writer Melissa Hung, the founding editor of Hyphen magazine. This year’s program features narrative, experimental, video art, and documentary, including Tony Nguyen’s touching documentary, Giap’s Last Day at the Ironing Board Factory. In the film, Tony goes back to a small town in Indiana to document his mother’s refugee experience and her retirement after nearly 35 years working at the last ironing board factory in America. Please join us for the Texas premieres of this and other kick-ass films.
