Christine Choy and Renee Tajima-Pena's Academy Award-nominated film recounts the 1982 hate-crime murder of Chinese-American engineer Vincent Chin at the hands of two Detroit autoworkers. Mistaken for Japanese, and blamed for U.S. manufacturing jobs lost to Japan, he was beaten to death with a baseball bat. The landmark case is remembered as a civil rights milestone that galvanized an Asian-American activist movement, and the film is a powerful chronicle of a community's cry for justice.
