DisOrient 2014 - Wild Wild West Music Video and Race Talk with Kate Rigg
Wild Wild West Music Video (5:35) 2013
Director: Todd Seligman
Starring Slanty Eyed Mama
Slanty Eyed Mama is two good Asian girls gone bad-assed. These two Juilliard grads explore contemporary culture and multicultural issues through the prism of the Asian American Experience and have traveled the world with their brand of 'Nuyorasian' street infused pop/rock/hip hop with a decidedly Asian slant.
Comedian and activist Kate Rigg speaks about growing up Can-Asian, being a Rice Cracker, ten things not to say to your Asian friend, ten things not to say to your Asian mother, why multiculturalism matters, the development of the A/Pi voice in the United States, how to feel proud of yourself even though your parents want you to be a doctor and your white friends think you are a nerd, the impact of myths and stereotypes, role models, the model minority, activism, outreach, the multicultural community, and why she didn't go to medical school. Or marry a doctor.
Brief Q&A with artist Kate Rigg before her lively talk. Approximately 1 hour.
