“What does it mean when so many white filmmakers envision futures inflected by Asian culture, but devoid of actual Asian people?” Part critical analysis, part reflective essay and sprinkled throughout with humor, justified anger, and acerbic observations, this one-hour illustrated lecture examines over fifty years of American science fiction cinema through the lens of Asian appropriation and whitewashing.
