Fresh off his documentary ACCEPTED's debut at the Tribeca Film Festival, Dan Chen—friend and prior guest of EFPA—joins Chris and Millie to talk about his new film that examines the story of T.M. Landry College Prep, a school in Louisiana that was renowned for sending its lower-income minority students to elite colleges until investigations proved there was something shady going on. The trio also discuss what they do and don't want to see more of in Asian American filmmaking and their thoughts on various media rep controversies.
