Mayor Ed Lee: Film Screening @ Stanford
May 22, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
In celebration of Asian Pacific American Heritage Month this May, the Asian Alumni Chapter of the Stanford Graduate School of Business (GSB) is proud to offer an on-campus Special Screening of a new documentary film about the late San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee – one of the first Asian-American mayors of a major U.S. city.
Produced by the Chinese Historical Society of America, the film presents the inspirational, humorous, and emotional story of this remarkable man and community leader, who passed away suddenly in office.
Watch the film and learn how Ed Lee – a son of immigrants, a pro bono lawyer-activist for tenants and garment workers, a habitual punster, and a reluctant politician – became a history-making civic leader.
Hillary Clinton and Warriors guard Steph Curry appear in the film, reflecting on what Mayor Lee meant to them and the larger community.
Twitter’s Biz Stone is an Executive Producer of the film, with major donors including Ron Conway and Marc Benioff.
This special event includes a pre-screening networking hour with hosted drinks and hot appetizers, and a unique post-screening fireside chat with the film’s director Rick Quan, an Emmy award winning TV journalist, and Alvin Lau, one of the executive producers and a Stanford GSB alumnus.
6:00 – 6:45pm Reception in Community Court (outside Cemex Auditorium) with refreshments
7:00 – 8:15pm Introduction and screening of film (in Cemex Auditorium)
8:15 – 9:00pm Panel discussion and Q&A
