DESCRIPTION

Arrested at age 16 and tried as an adult for kidnapping and robbery, Eddy Zheng served over 20 years in California prisons and jails. Filmmaker Ben Wang’s “Breathin’: The Eddy Zheng Story” paints an intimate portrait of Eddy — prisoner, immigrant, son, activist — on his journey to freedom, rehabilitation and redemption. The Asian Americans for Civil Rights and Equality Network will present a screening of the film followed by a panel discussion with Zheng, Wang and other community leaders to discuss issues of incarceration, deportation and detention.

 This program is part of the Asian Art Museum’s Community Partner Program initiative, through which we invite community organizations to present programs of interest to their community, and which will introduce new audiences to the museum.
