By Brenda Hee Wong, 2020 CHCP Director

New CHCP Advisory Board member Nathan Louie, along with his team of greeters clad in his beautiful Chinese robes, posed on the red carpet at the California Theatre with Baldwin Chiu, Larissa Lam, and their 6-year-old daughter Caliya. Baldwin Chiu (aka Only Won) and Larissa Lam are a music and filmmaking husband-wife team and have been past CHCP Speaker Series presenters. The couple premiered their documentary film, “Far East Deep South,” at this Cinequest Film Festival event. The documentary tells the Chiu family’s journey to find their grandfather’s remains in Cleveland, Mississippi.

Watch their new music video below, highlighting Asian American history while putting their own twist on a song from the hit musical “Hamilton.” It’s a family affair with their daughter Caliya (aka Lil’ Won)! Be sure to watch other music videos by this talented couple, available on YouTube.
