What is SMITH? It’s a film.

January 3rd, 2006 by Tim

I hope we can use this blog to flesh out what SMITH magazine is really about — through posts and musings and links. Here’s one I just found today, and if there’s a more “SMITH” film out there, let me know. I’d like to see it.

The Grace Lee Project
When Korean American filmmaker Grace Lee was growing up in Missouri, she was the only Grace Lee she knew. Once she left the Midwest however, everyone she met seemed to know “another Grace Lee.” But why did they assume that all Grace Lees were reserved, dutiful, piano-playing overachievers? The filmmaker plunges into a funny, highly unscientific investigation into all those Grace Lees who break the mold — from a fiery social activist to a rebel who tried to burn down her high school. With wit and charm, THE GRACE LEE PROJECT puts a hilarious spin on the eternal question, “What’s in a name?”
