To say that the movie “Crazy Rich Asians” has been making an impact is an understatement. The importance of this movie is summed up by actress Gemma Chan, who plays “Astrid Young Teo” in the movie,
“We know that the representation or lack thereof of not just Asians but other minorities in the media and popular culture directly affects how minorities are treated in everyday life and that’s why it means so much…”
At MRSOE! We understand how it feels to not be seen, heard or understood and it’s something that we’ve been trying to tackle since our first show in 2005. Our goal is to not just tackle under-representation, but more importantly the lack of authentic representation. Crazy Rich Asians is a good start.
