With increased hate crimes against our Asian American friends and family, stories like Minari come at a time where hope and love are needed to impact the community.
Director Lee Isaac Chung and cast speak to the faith elements surrounding the making of the film, and its clear impact as a Korean American story.
A tender and sweeping story about what roots us, Minari follows a Korean-American family that moves to a tiny Arkansas farm in search of their own American Dream. The family home changes completely with the arrival of their sly, foul-mouthed, but incredibly loving grandmother. Amidst the instability and challenges of this new life in the rugged Ozarks, Minari shows the undeniable resilience of family and what really makes a home.
