Storyline

'Yellow Face' is one Chinese actress' journey to discover what it means to be East Asian in the U.S. The film-maker is the first Chinese National to be accepted into the Juilliard School's Drama Division. Since her graduation in 2008 she has followed the protest against yellow-face in Hollywood. 'Avatar: The Last Airbender,' a children's show on Nickelodeon featured East Asian and Inuit characters in a fantasy setting. The creators of the show were inspired and informed by East Asian and Inuit culture. The live-action feature 'The Last Airbender' produced by Paramount cast all three leads with white actors, and filled peripheral and nonverbal roles with East Asian, Mid-West Asian and Hispanic actors. Although the casting enraged many fans, others remain at peace with it. The film-maker raises these questions: Is white-washing racistic? Why does yellow-face still exist in 2009? And what is the social impact on future generations? Written by Anonymous and Brian McInnis
