November 27, 2020 will be Bruce Lee's 80th birthday. To commemorate this momentous occasion, a group of the largest Asian American film and culture organizations is proud to present a free screening of BE WATER and including a live drive-in screening of the film in Bruce Lee's birthplace San Francisco. This to be followed by a live streamed panel with director Bao Nguyen, Bruce Lee's daughter Shannon Lee, culture writer Phil Yu (Angry Asian Man), celebrity chef and 'Ugly Delicious' host Dave Chang, and some surprise guests. They will chat about the film and the legacy of the Asian American icon, who almost five decades later, is still as popular than ever and inspiring a new generation. The event is not just an examination of the experiences of Asians and their flight for inclusion and representation but also a chance to support arts organizations who were deeply affected by the pandemic and showcase how they have paved way for the future generation of BIPOC artists and storytellers.
BE WATER, an official selection of Sundance, SXSW, and Cannes Film Festivals, this remarkable documentary broke ratings records when it premiered on ESPN as part of the venerable '30 on 30' series. Join us for this special event screening and panel discussion as we celebrate this iconoclast's birthday!
