TwoOhSix Podcast - S01/E03B - Diversity in Film Bonus Episode with Rosalind Chao, Nancy Kelly and Kenji Yamamoto

This is a special bonus episode of the TwoOhSix Diversity in Film Podcast Series featuring the creators of Thousand Pieces of Gold, a groundbreaking film from 1991 that has recently been beautifully restored and re-released. On hand for the conversation are director Nancy Kelly, editor and producer Kenji Yamamoto, and the star of the movie, Rosalind Chao.

When an opportunity was created for me to interview these fine folks, I had to jump on it and add it into the Diversity in Film series. The movie itself speaks on the topic of diversity and the three film makers give a lot of insight on what it was like as female and minority film makers in the late 80's when this movie was being made. Rosalind was even nice enough to take a moment and discuss her role in the new Mulan live action film that we will hopefully get to see soon.
