MAYOR ED LEE

Directed by Rick Quan

“Live your lives boldly – keep the doors open for others!” – Mayor Ed Lee
MAYOR ED LEE honors and celebrates the legacy of San Francisco’s late mayor, Edwin Lee, chronicling the life of the first Asian American mayor of a major city in the U.S. From his early days as an attorney and activist to his mayoral election, filmmaker Rick Quan portrays Lee as the “mayor for everyone” who advocated for affordable housing, livable minimum wage and immigrant rights.

Told through archival videos and interviews with his family and San Francisco political figures, Quan shares the leadership, strength, dedication and humor of a man who helped turn the tide of Asian American representation in politics in a city that needed it. — Lin Kung
