Asian Representation In Movies: Have Things Changed Since 1997? by Kontinentalist
Issues like diversity and representation are often talked about in abstract terms. This project breaks down the issue of minority representation into numbers, by visualising the cast diversity and gross earnings of blockbuster movies from 1997 to 2018. In doing so it provides a historical context to Hollywood’s pattern of underrepresentation and debunks the myth that having a minority cast is less profitable.
