The golden screen

the movies that made Asian America
Jeff Yang
Book - 2023

From critical indie darlings like Chan is Missing to epic Hollywood favorites like Marvel's Shang-Chi to beloved works from overseas like Parasite, The Golden Screen is a look back at big-screen works featuring Asian images that inspired, inflamed, and enraptured audiences across a century of cinema, beginning with 1915's silent classic The Cheat and continuing through to the Daniels' 2022 breakout Everything Everywhere All at Once. Packed with vintage photos, original artwork, one-of-a-kind conversations with Asian America's leading performers and filmmakers, and nostalgic reflections from dozens of leading Asian American commentators, this unique collection reminds us how deeply movies shape society and identity - and how much representation matters, then and now.
