SEADRIFT

Directed by Tim Tsai

In the 70s, a group of Vietnamese refugees settled in Seadrift, Texas, on the invitation of a crab processing factory owner. Slowly, they joined the local crab fishermen in the Gulf of Mexico, but racial tensions erupt into violence, resulting in a murder that brings the KKK to town and caused the refugees to flee, once again. Decades later, this film brings former residents together to investigate what happened and to ask whether reconciliation is possible.
