Included in this video article are producers George Chen, Siu Ming Tsui, Paul Ottosson, and Mike Medavoy, actors James Hong (“The Day the Earth Stood Still”), Jimmy Jean-Louis (“Heroes”), Karen Han (“Kung Fu Panda”), Louie Mandylor (“Gerald”), John A.

The world gets smaller all the time. Trade agreements and
intercultural exchange have become the norm. The world of film can
help bridge gaps in communication, understanding, and appreciation.
