Filmmaker Steven De Castro will screen his award-winning documentary film FRED HO’S LAST YEAR, now available for academic license.

What does it take for Asian American artists, mostly ignored, to make their mark? Controversial activist and avant garde composer Fred Ho, who passed away in April 2014, fought to overturn every field which he entered, striving to question their premises and holding others to the rise up to the principles they espoused. Although he adamantly promoted his arguments, he was well known for radically changing his position. He developed over many years unquestionable achievements of provocation in the fields of politics, Asian American identity, and music, with very little separation among the three. Always controversial, Fred’s music, writings, and example are an inspiration for friends and critics alike.
