Once again, Visual Communications proudly presents the latest edition of works from its pioneering emerging filmmaker program, the Armed With a Camera Fellowship. In tandem with a couple of new works from the UCLA Center for EthnoCommunications' Video Ethnography Workshop, this grouping of new works casts an eye on the social situation, and how us Asian peoples—youngsters, seniors, queer, straight, wannabes, never-were's and just about everything else in between—are making an impact on the whole big scene.
