    Photographic Justice: The Corky Lee Story Trailer

    “I don’t think people need to remember who I am, it’s [more] important that they remember the images.” An official trailer is available for a documentary titled Photographic Justice: The Corky Lee Story, made by journalist Jennifer Takaki. This film is an intimate portrait of a Chinese-American photographer named Corky Lee, whose pioneering work documented the richness and complexity of the Asian American Pacific Islander (AAPI) experience for half a century. Lee’s fascinating photographs of daily life, culture, and social justice movements reveal a rare record of a community often overlooked by mainstream media – and demonstrate the power of photography as a tool for advocacy and social change. Corky Lee was born in 1947 in New York City to Chinese immigrants who owned a laundry in Queens. Lee’s photographs over 50 years documented the birth & growth of the Asian American movement for social justice and he became known as “The Undisputed, Unofficial, Asian American Photographer Laureate.” His passing in 2021 at the age of 73 due to Covid was mourned in the press worldwide. This fascinating doc is set to debut in theaters this April.

    For over 50 years, Chinese-American photographer Corky Lee documented the celebrations, struggles, and daily lives of Asian American Pacific Islanders with epic focus. Determined to push mainstream media to include AAPI culture in the visual record of American history, Lee produced an astonishing archive of nearly a million compelling photographs. His work takes on new urgency with the alarming rise in anti-Asian attacks during the Covid pandemic. Jennifer Takaki’s intimate portrait reveals the triumphs and tragedies of the man behind the lens. Photographic Justice: The Corky Lee Story is directed by Japanese-American filmmaker / journalist Jennifer Takaki, making her feature directorial debut with this doc after work in TV news previously. Produced by Jennifer Takaki and Linda Lew Woo. This initially premiered at the 2022 DOC NYC Film Festival a few years back. All Is Well Pictures will debut Takaki’s Photographic Justice: The Corky Lee Story doc film in select US theaters (NY & LA at first) starting on April 19th, 2024 this spring.
