Kim submitted three films to this year’s festival:
The Mayor of Castro Street: The Triumphs and Tragedies of Harvey Milk tells the story of the gay rights pioneer, whose life was cut short by an assassin. Milk, who was the first openly gay elected official in California, dreamed of hope and equality for all members of society.
No More Hunger, No More Waste is a short documentary about efforts in Orange County, California, to bring food to approximately 300,000 food-insecure people who live there. The film focuses on the Second Harvest Food Bank, which delivers more than 26 million meals to people in need.
Marcel Duchamp: The Art of Life showcases the art of Marcel Duchamp, a French visual artist who broke barriers and challenged the traditionalist and conformist styles of the past. Duchamps helped transform art from visual to cerebral and influenced other artists, and styles, with his work.
“I am so inspired by the unique voice of Angela Kim, who is unafraid to take on big ideas,” says Wendy Milette, director of the MY HERO International Film Festival. “Her filmmaking style is engaging, informative & inspiring. I feel motivated to take action after watching her films.”
