In these challenging moments, Visual Communications continues to move forward in celebrating communities as key contributors to 50 years of Visual Communications. The organization was born because its founders began searching for visual resources to build a greater consciousness of Asian Pacific histories and experiences in America. Fueled by the burgeoning Civil Rights and Anti-War movements, they set out to showcase Asian Pacific American lives by creating educational kits, photographing community events, audiotaping stories, and collecting historical images.
In its continued work to create spaces for expression, engagement, and empowerment, VC proudly presents the 36th annual LOS ANGELES ASIAN PACIFIC FILM FESTIVAL, reflecting a lineup that centers conversations that are most critical and compelling at this time.
