Recorded live during the Asian American ComiCon Summit on Art, Action, and the Future.
Marvel's Iron Fist has generally been seen as a major disappointment — and it could've been so much more, if only Marvel and Netflix had embraced a not-so-radical rethinking of their martial artist hero as an Asian American. Some Asian American filmmakers actually brought their reimagined concepts for an Asian American Iron Fist to life, and they'll share their short videos as part of a conversation with the creator of the #AAIRONFIST hashtag.
Keith Chow, creator of the #AAIronFist hashtag moderates a screening of fan films and discussion with panelists Lewis Tan (Marvel's Iron Fist); Benjamin To (Filmmaker, The Immortal Iron Fist); Adam Lim (Iron Fist Pitch Video); John Brougher (Creator, Iron and Rage); and Susan Cheng (Entertainment Reporter, Buzzfeed).
