In part 10 of a 52-part series called WHITMAN, ALABAMA, we meet Han and Dang, owners of Viet Cuisine in Huntsville, Alabama, and their daughter Eva. As they read a verse of Walt Whitman’s poetry, their daily life at the restaurant unfolds before our eyes.

The initiative is a year-long effort engaging the Asian American documentary filmmaking community to build an infrastructure connecting social justice and cultural organizations in the American South. As part of this initiative, STORIES FROM THE AMERICAN SOUTH SHORTS brings uniquely-curated Asian American voices to the social justice and cultural identity issues lying in the lesser-explored region.
