Yellow Future (Jan Chi Hyun Park)Sun Yung Shin recommends 'Yellow Future: Oriental Style in Hollywood Cinema' by Jan Chi Hyun Park


"Yellow Future: Oriental Style in Hollywood Cinema" will help anyone who is interested in movies understand the racist whitewashing of Asian characters and the Orientalist cultural appropriation rampant in Hollywood yesterday and today.

Some of my favorite films such as "Blade Runner" are examined in depth! Her work inspires my own poetry.

Sun Yung Shin is the author of "Unbearable Splendor," and editor of the anthology, "A Good Time for the Truth."
