Project Title: Beautiful Stories (short narrative film series)

Project Description: Beautiful Stories is a series of three short narrative films on Korean American queer and immigrant history. This film project is the first to document, in fictionalized form, the influx of Korean medical nurses and doctors into the US workforce in the 1960s and 1970s as a result of census-changing immigration.
