The Donut King

The AAPI Center is hosting a Staff/Faculty AAPI Film Club to explore contemporary issues and cultural traditions of Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders, both at USF and globally. These events are open to all USF faculty and staff. We invite all to connect with colleagues and share awareness of our new initiative with your students and campus partners. This event is co-presented by Antiracism, Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion.

The Donut King (2021, 99 minutes) presents the story of Ted Ngoy, a Cambodian refugee who helped sponsor visas for incoming refugees while building and expanding his donut shop chain throughout the West Coast. Directed by Alice Gu, the film chronicles his experiences of growing up as a Chinese immigrant in Cambodia, fleeing the Khmer Rouge regime, settling in Orange County, and his transnational political career demarcated by his rising gambling addiction.
