Breaking the Bamboo Ceiling: the Evolving Representation of Asians in Film, TV and Gaming

In the last few years, we've seen developments in the representation of Asians on our screens, be it in film, television or gaming: from Mirror's Edge to Halo 5, and from Quantico to Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Master of None in TV shows, Asians are increasingly present in our media. However, is mere presence enough for racial equity? How well do these representations fare? Despite being the largest ethnic group in the world, Asian characters often fall victim to stereotyping and tropes, are marginalized, or are underrepresentative of the diversity of voices, cultures and nationalities that fall under the broad Asian umbrella. Join our panelists as they discuss changes in the representation of Asians, how far we have come, and what challenges still need to be overcome. Our panel will conclude with a crowdsourcing activity for improving Asian representation, so come prepared to share your ideas!
