I met the affable, energetic Andrea Lwin last fall at the Banana conference of Asian American bloggers (Banana II details coming soon!). At the time, she had just launched “Slanted,” a comedic web series based on her one-woman show of the same name, about an Asian American actresses’ struggles to make her mark in Hollywood. I know, not a new story, but done well and with her engaging AAPI twist, it’s enjoyable.
She had two installments available at the time. It’s taken a while, but she now has a welcome third installment finally online.
My only quibble: This one’s more about the typical Hollywood stuff, and less about Asian Americans’ place in La-La Land, or her innner struggles with her Asian values (and her crazy fobby parents).
But she remains an engaging figure. I’d really like to see a video of her one-woman show!
