"Mayor Ed Lee" Documentary Film Screening, Reception, Filmmaker Q&A

SEE EVENT DETAILS
The Chinese Historical Society of America (CHSA) invites you to a special screening of “MAYOR ED LEE” -- a documentary film about the first Asian-American mayor of a major US city.  
This event includes a pre-screening Reception and post-screening Fireside Chat with the film's Director Rick Quan.
New Film Content
The screening at Delancey Street Foundation’s renown Screening Room will include new interview footage of Hillary Clinton reflecting on what Mayor Lee meant to her and the larger community.  
An Inspirational Story for All Ages
The film presents the inspirational, humorous, and emotional story of this remarkable man and community leader, who passed away suddenly while in office.  
Watch how Ed Lee -- a son of immigrants, a pro bono lawyer-activist for tenants and garment workers, a habitual punster, and a reluctant politician -- became a history-making civic leader.
