More and more people are hearing about our little film. We were excited that CCN Sunrise, a morning news show in Pasadena, interviewed Larissa Lam recently about the film and her suicide prevention campaign. Asian American magazine, Inheritance, also did a wonderful feature interview with Larissa Lam and Baldwin Chiu in their October issue about the American Dream and Finding Cleveland fit perfectly into that theme.
It was another packed house at the Finding Cleveland Experience hosted by the South Pasadena Library and co-sponsored by the South Pasadena Chinese American Club and Friends of the Library. South Pasadena Councilmember Robert Joe made a special presentation to Larissa Lam and Baldwin Chiu bestowing special city coins in recognition of their achievements. See more photos from the event and article in the South Pasadena Review here.
