Special Screening of Mayor Ed Lee Documentary with Director Q&AVIEW EVENT DETAILS
In Partnership with Foreign Cinema
Join Asia Society Northern California and Foreign Cinema Restaurant for a special event in San Francisco. A screening of the Mayor Ed Lee documentary film will take place in the evening, plus Q&A with the film's Director, Rick Quan, two-time Emmy Award-winning broadcast TV journalist.
Ed Lee was the first Asian-American mayor of a major US city.
The film presents the inspirational, humorous, and emotional story of a remarkable man and community leader, who passed away suddenly while in office.
Watch how Ed Lee -- a son of immigrants, a pro bono lawyer-activist for tenants and garment workers, a habitual punster, and a reluctant politician -- became a history-making civic leader.
The film features interviews with Steph Curry, Hillary Clinton, London Breed, Willie Brown, Gary Locke & many others -- who reflect on what Mayor Lee meant to them, San Francisco, and the larger community.
Co-hosted by the renown Foreign Cinema restaurant in San Francisco's historic Mission District and the Chinese Historical Society of America, which produced the film.
