Join fellow Michigan Alums, their families, and the Midwest Asian American Student Union to watch a documentary called ‘Bad Axe’, led by fellow Asian-American Michigan alum David Siev (LSA Screen Arts & Cultures '15).
The movie is based on his close-knit Asian-American family living in rural Michigan during the 2020 pandemic as they fight to keep their local restaurant and American dream alive. With rising racial tensions, the family must unite and use their voices as they reckon with backlash from a divided community, white supremacists, and intergenerational trauma from Cambodia’s Killing Fields.
The movie screening is part of the Spring 2024 Midwest Asian American Student Union conference which the University of Michigan is hosting, and will be followed by a panel including David Siev and his family.
