USA 2006 60 Minutes Documentary
A film written, directed and produced by Jeff Adachi

“Highest recommendation … the Slanted Screen hits all its marks.” --- SF Chronicle

“This is compelling social reality.” --- Asian Week

“Well-researched study of how Asian American men have been stereotyped."
--- SF Bay Guardian

The Silent Screen explores the portrayals of Asian men in American cinema, chronicling the experiences of actors who have had to struggle against ethnic stereotyping and limiting roles. The film presents a critical examination of Hollywood’s image-making machine, through a fascinating parade of 50 film clips spanning a century. Winner of the Best Short Documentary award at the NY International Independent Film & Video film festival, the Slanted Screen “brings
into focus the most dangerous aspect of prejudice.”
