Vincent Who? Special Edition DVD

Sunday, June 20, 2010

I got sent word in from the Vincent Who? team about a new DVD Special Edition that marks the 28th anniversary of the hate crime against Vincent Chin.

Here's what director Tony Lam had to say about it:

This week marks the 28th anniversary of the hate crime murder of Vincent Chin, a case that ignited the first Asian American civil rights movement and gave rise to a new "Asian American" identity and community.

In commemoration, we are releasing a Special Edition DVD of VINCENT WHO?, the 2009 documentary about Vincent Chin and the Asian American experience in political activism (see our new widescreen trailer). We are also launching a new website dedicated to Vincent Chin and his legacy to serve as an educational resource.

In doing so, we hope to contribute toward the day when the momentous, but mostly unknown story of Vincent Chin becomes a familiar one, not only among Asian Americans, but all Americans.
The special edition DVD has both the 4:3 and 16:9 widescreen formats and has some great new discounts for educational showings and use.

Pick it up and check out more at the site.
