We are excited to present a conversation with celebrated writer-director Destin Daniel Cretton. His most recent film is Marvel Studios’ Shang Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings – the first film in the MCU that is led by an Asian actor, and mostly Asian cast.
Destin will speak with Roseanne Liang about his experience directing Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, and his journey developing his directing and storytelling voice through his prior films that brought him to this point in his career. His body of work includes 2013 Sundance and SXSW award winner Short Term 12, and two NY Times best-selling memoir adaptations The Glass Castle, and Just Mercy which is an adaptation of the memoir by civil rights attorney Bryan Stevenson.
He is currently directing and executive producing the highly anticipated Disney+ series American Born Chinese based on the graphic novel by Gene Luen Yang.
Destin will join us via live stream.
