The film will remain available to see on the Abingdon’s YouTube channel after this date and tells the story of a Teaneck-born Asian American actress who poses as an exotic Hong Kong movie star so she can get her shot on Broadway.

Made possible by grants from the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council and Upper Manhattan Empowerment Zone administered by LMCC.

The event is finished.
