Mental Health of Asian Americans

Join us Monday, April 6th from 3-5pm

at GA Tech Student Theater, Peachtree Rm, 1st Floor, 350 Ferst Drive, NW, Atlanta, GA

for film screening and discussion of Things I Never Said with film director Wendy Wang and producer, Beatrice Ho. We will hear their artist statements, followed by a short panel discussion and Q&A. Please RSVP HERE

Things I Never Said follows the lives of four Asian Americans and their mental health journeys. Not only are we exploring the reasons why people choose to stay in isolation, but also how familial cultural differences and the model minority myth contributes to social and academic pressures put on Asian Americans. This story is also guided by a community art installation as a therapeutic release for our subjects as well as the local Los Angeles community to collectively share our mental health struggles.

About the Director, Wendy Wang: With her USC film school training behind her, Wendy has worked in development, production, and localization in Los Angeles for the past five years. Her commercial experiences include music videos, branding, and promotional videos for local businesses as well as training videos for internal uses. Wendy looks to create more projects bringing attention to social issues and cultural diversity, especially on the topics regarding Asian American culture and women’s rights.

About the Producer, Beatrice Ho: From Taipei, Taiwan, Beatrice recently graduated from Chapman University with a B.F.A. in Creative Producing. Her passion for the arts began with playing video games and the immersive quality of storytelling they lent to its audiences, which eventually evolved into her passion for cinema. Beatrice has produced four short films and has also worked on fifteen film productions as a production manager and location manager that has trained her logistical and producing strengths
