dir. Grace Lee, USA, 56 min

Off the Menu: Asian America is a co-production between the Center for Asian American Media and KQED, featuring a one-hour PBS primetime special by award-winning filmmaker Grace Lee (American Revolutionary: The Evolution of Grace Lee Boggs), original stories, and web content.


Grappling with how family, tradition, faith, and geography shape our relationships to food, Off the Menu takes the audience on a journey from Texas to New York and from Wisconsin to Hawai’i, using our obsession with food as a launching point to delve into a wealth of stories, traditions, and unexpected characters that help nourish this nation of immigrants.


FREE tasting reception for ticket and badge holders after the film.
