Spend an evening with the star of Marvel's first ever Asian superhero movie, Simu Liu, as he traces his path from his humble upbringing in Harbin, China to the red carpet of Hollywood to celebrate the publication of his debut book, We Were Dreamers.
In conversation for this exclusive event, Simu will share his own origin story of being a Chinese immigrant, his battles with cultural stereotypes and his own identity, becoming a TV star, and landing the role of a lifetime in Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings.
“This is the story I want to tell—a story about our little family of three that crossed the ocean from China to North America in the relentless pursuit of a better life. A story about the obstacles that nearly tore us apart, whether it was a clash of cultures, a gap of generations or simply our own stubbornness. A story about an imperfect family that made mistakes, often hurt one another and nearly imploded on many occasions, but held on, survived and even thrived.”
Deeply personal, honest, and inspiring, this event is about growing up between cultures, finding your family, and becoming the master of your own extraordinary circumstance. And above all, it is a unique opportunity to hear Simu’s story, in his own words.
