*Apologies for Ryan's audio, hopefully it's not too off putting, and will be fixed for next issue* On this extra special issue Geeky Brummie is joined by Amy and Viv from besea.n, a grassroots movement ,created to shine a light on Britain’s East and South East Asians. We talk about the impact of East Asian and South East Asian under-representation and mis-characterisation in cinema and how it affects the wider cultural perception of how East and South East Asians are viewed in western society. We look at if films like Shang Chi are changing this narrative plus we review the film and postulate on what we'd like to see next.  ------ Timestamps: 00:00:00 besean intro, its history and purpose 00:13:25 Asian Cinema, is it tranforming? 00:22:50 Attending the Shang Chi Premiere 00:29:00 The legacy of action focused Asian Cinema 00:35:10 Representation behind the screen 00:39:00 Improving representation in the future 00:42:00 British Born Asian actors, Asian theatre & inspiring the
