PATSY MINK on Comcast VOD in May

In December 2010, Comcast launched Cinema Asian America, a ground-breaking new video-on demand offering, featuring Asian American films and videos. For the first time, millions of viewers across the nation are able to watch a monthly-curated series of Asian American and Asian films, including award-winning films fresh from the film festival circuit and classics which beg to be revisited.

From May 1 through May 31, 2011, PATSY MINK: AHEAD OF THE MAJORITY will be available to all Comcast digital cable subscribers with On-Demand.  Comcast is the nation’s largest cable provider. The film will cost $1.99/view.  To access the film,
viewers should click on the “On Demand” button through their digital cable menu and then look under the “Movies” folder. In this will be a “Movie Collections” folder and inside of this viewers will find “Cinema Asian America” and will be able to access the film.

To help celebrate the offering, the Asian American collection on XFINITY On Demand conducted an interview with filmmaker Kimberlee Bassford.
