Vincent Who? - A Film On Vincent Chin

VINCENT WHO? explores the legacy of the Vincent Chin case. In 1982, Vincent Chin was murdered in Detroit by two white autoworkers at the height of anti-Japanese sentiments. His killers, however, were let off with a $3,000 fine. Galvanized by this injustice, Asian Americans around the country united for the first time to form a real community and civil rights movement. This documentary features interviews with the key players at the time and a whole new generation of activists. VINCENT WHO? asks how far Asian Americans have come since then and how far they have yet to go.
