Hamilton’s AmericaVIEW EVENT DETAILS
Drink Reception 6:30 pm
Begin 7:00 pm
Asia Society Hong Kong Center is excited to announce Asia’s premiere screening of the documentary film Hamilton’s America.
Hamilton’s America is the Peabody Award-finalist documentary film that brings history to vivid life through the lens of Lin-Manuel Miranda’s pop culture phenomenon, Hamilton. The story of Alexander Hamilton is most remembered for its dramatic conclusion, which saw Hamilton killed in a duel by Vice President Aaron Burr. But the full story of this political genius – a poor immigrant who built himself up from nothing to become one of America’s most vital architects – has largely been forgotten by history… until now. The documentary, Hamilton’s America, delves deep into history by combining footage of the staged show, cast-led field trips to historic locations, and interviews with experts and prominent personalities (including Presidents Barack Obama and George W. Bush, Jimmy Fallow, Stephen Sondheim, Nas, and many more).
Hamilton’s America is produced by the Emmy® and Academy Award®-winning company, RadicalMedia. The film premiered at the New York Film Festival to rave reviews before airing on PBS in October, 2016.
This evening program will begin with a short introduction by David Cruikshank, BNY Mellon's Chairman of Asia Pacific and Deputy Consul General Thomas Hodges from the United States Consulate in Hong Kong.
If you are unable to attend on June 26, please check out the screening on July 4.
