We're at the Center for Asian American Media (CAAM) Festival covering Legacy and Lineage, a series of shorts that highlights 5 Bay Area Asian American artists. We spoke with director Laura Paule and producer Melanie Elvena about how they chose which artists to cover, why this project is especially personal to both of them, and how the Asian Pacific Islander Cultural Center (APICC) is working to keep Asian American stories told. In a time when violence against the AAPI community are on the rise, we need these stories told more than ever, and we are honored to highlight artists and organizations that are making that happen.
