Chon wrote, directed and stars in the film alongside Simone Baker and David So, most famous for his YouTube channel.
“Gook” has proven to be a festival favorite this year, from receiving the Audience Award at Sundance to accolades from the Los Angeles Asian Pacific Film Festival, CAAM Fest San Francisco, the Houston Asian American Film Festival and the Las Vegas Film Festival.
