Bang Bang

Bang Bang is the story of two Asian American teenagers dealing with deteriorating family lives and escalating gang violence. Thai Ngo, best known as real-life Portland rap artist Thai, debuts as a resilient Vietnamese youth looking for a way out of the gang life. He may find it in an unlikely outlet: hip-hop-but an escalating turf war may drag him back into the game. A film that “always rings with truth” (Hyphen Magazine), Bang Bang won the Best First Feature award at the 2011 Los Angeles Asian Pacific Film Festival.
