Director David Siev scheduled to appear live as Keynote Speaker for the Liu Institute's Asian American Distinguished Speaker Series.

Bad Axe captures a real-time portrait of a closely-knit Asian American family, living in rural Michigan during the 2020 pandemic, as they fight to keep their local restaurant and American dream alive. With rising racial tensions, the family uses their voice and must unite as they reckon with backlash from a divided community, white supremacists, and intergenerational trauma from Cambodia's killing fields.

This is a free but ticketed event. Tickets will only be distributed one hour prior to the performance.
