Join us for the debut of We Wove a Net — a series of documentary shorts about growing up Asian American in the Midwest.
Daughters. Sisters. Mothers. Crossing oceans in pursuit of “the American Dream.” But, what is it like to grow up caught in between worlds? And how do we maintain connection to our roots in a place where survival and success are also measured by how much of ourselves we can erase?
Through the experiences of four Asian American immigrant families throughout metro Detroit, we look at different narratives surrounding the American Dream, exploring what meaning they hold for our communities and confronting where they fall short.
