David nominated this Movie-Go-Round Future Classic, Kubo and the Two Strings. This 2016 stop-motion animation film is inarguably gorgeous, and beautifully made, but it is not without its controversy. We talk about the low Asian representation in casting, touch on parental mental illness, and debate how astute a 10-year old should be expected to be when confronted with a magic monkey. Come check it out!

The article David references early in the show can be found on the website for the Center for Asian American Media.
