The issue focuses on documentary education on the graduate and undergraduate levels, as well as some of the venturesome models outside of the traditional academic space. We also hear from educators about the docs they assign and the ways they engage their students.

IDA-Supported Doc of the Week

Directed by
Curtis Chin

The IDA continues to celebrate Asian Pacific American Heritage Month! Director Curtis Chin's latest work takes us on a journey through several historic Chinatowns in the U.S. that were central to the forming of the Chinese-American identity but are now impacted by the forces of gentrification, assimilation, and an aging population.
