From DC APA Film Festival’s first screening at their inaugural festival in October 2000:
This Academy-Award nominated film is a powerful statement about racism in working-class America. It relates the stark facts of Vincent Chin’s brutal murder. This tragic story is interwoven with the whole fabric of timely social concerns. It addresses issues such as the failure of our judicial system to value every citizen’s rights equally, the collapse of the automobile industry under pressure from Japanese imports, and the souring of the American dream for the blue collar worker. Widely acclaimed by the press, “Who Killed Vincent Chin?” is a memorable film for all audiences.
This film contains graphic descriptions of violence. Viewer discretion is advised.
