OSCARS: Domee Shi Wins Award For Pixar Short “BAO”

“I think one of the great things about being able to make Boa is I got to do a lot more research and dive into my heritage.

GEMMA CHAN Talks About “Crazy Rich Asians”, Representation And “Captain Marvel”

I think if we taught the history of, for example, empire and colonialism, I think we would understand much more why we are where we are, why certain countries are where they are. When black people get told to go home, or about the Windrush generation. I wasn’t taught anything in school either about the British Empire. They are here because we were there. That’s the truth. So I think people would be a lot less prejudiced and a lot less hostile if we understood history better.
