Before Crazy Rich Asians or Always be my Maybe, there was The Joy Luck Club in 1993. Not many mainstream American movies before it and for a long time afterward had a majority Asian American cast. Some Asian Americans really disliked the movie after it came out, but recently it seems to have had a revival, with the 25th anniversary of its release being celebrated at 2019 CAAMfest. In addition, Gold House is sponsoring online discussion with author Amy Tan and the cast of the movie at 6 PM Pacific Time on June 9th, 2020. To RSVP, go to Gold House’s Event Facebook page.
