Pass the Remote: Documentaries at the 40th CAAMFest highlight the resilience of immigrant families

Numerous Bay Area activities are in the works to celebrate Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month, with the standout for movie fans being CAAMFest. The Center for Asian American Media event features an array of films short and long, musical performances, talks and special events to mark the fest’s 40th year, a milestone that finds organizers emerging from a two-year period of not having in-person screenings. This year’s program will be a hybrid of live and online viewings, Thursday through May 22, with summit talks preceding it all this Wednesday. Events and screenings will take place in San Francisco and Oakland.
