Displaced in the New South (1996)

About the Film

In 1980, there were a few thousand Asian and Latino immigrants in Georgia. By 1994, there were more than 300,000. Displaced in the New South explores the cultural collision between Asian and Hispanic immigrants and the suburban communities near Atlanta where they settled. Featuring unforgettable people like Suttiwan Cox, ESL teacher and stand up comic, the film is a moving, sensitive case study of a nationwide trend that is bringing explosive political upheaval all across the country.
