This research project investigates whether the presence of Asian-Americans on screen is evolving: whether the presence is increasing, or the roles are becoming more significant. As seen in older movies, Asian-American actors often played stereotypical roles or were portrayed in a negative light. By conducting extensive interviews, reading books and articles, and observing modern day movies and television, the results could potentially determine if the involvement of Asian-Americans actors in the film industry has evolved from its past or still needs change.
