ASIAN IN AMERICA

ASIAN IN AMERICA

New American PerspectivesHIFF Virtual Reality

ASIAN IN AMERICA is a symbolic exhibition and 3-course dining experience that explores the complex narrative of the Asian American identity through food and drink, virtual reality, spoken word and poetry. The ingredients, cooking techniques, and alternating presentations of poetry and virtual reality recreations (made in Tilt Brush), will take you on a multi-sensory journey through the trials and triumphs of the Asian American identity, addressing topics of cultural hierarchies in the food system, the lack of the individualism granted to minorities and the internalization of the "white savior" complex. 

 For one night only, HIFF is partnering with the acclaimed Studio ATAO to bring this unique dining experience to Hawai'i. At HIFF39, ASIAN IN AMERICA takes the form of a three-course dining experience paired with two unique cocktails and three short pieces of virtual reality - designed and prepared by the Studio ATAO team and presented at The Pig and the Lady, one of Honolulu’s great restaurants.
