Description from the you tube page:

"Slaying the Dragon Reloaded: Asian Women in Hollywood and Beyond" is a 30-minute video documentary that examines visual representations of Asian women made by commercial media as well as independent Asian American artists. The story picks up where "Slaying the Dragon: Asian Women in U.S. Television and Film" (1988) ends, with Hollywood representations of Asian women from 1984 to 2009 to explore how these images reflect the significant social and demographic changes that have occurred during the last quarter of the 20th century. The sequel also showcases Asian American media makers as the proliferation of alternative media creates more opportunities to challenge and broaden perspectives of women.
