Statement on Anti-Asian Violence

The Department of Cinematic Arts at the University of Iowa wishes to express its unequivocal condemnation of violence against Asian-Americans and people of Asian descent in the US and internationally. Like many, we were shocked and saddened by the horrific killing of eight people, including six Asian-American women, in Atlanta on March 16th. These crimes occurred amidst a surge in verbal and physical assaults against Asians during the Coronavirus pandemic, itself undergirded by a much longer history anti-Asian violence in which racism and sexism have long intersected.
