Come party with us at 330 Ritch on Friday September 14th and help raise funds for BREATHIN’: THE EDDY ZHENG STORY, the first ever documentary to highlight Eddy Zheng’s 21 years behind bars and the impact of incarceration and deportation on the Asian American community. Currently finishing up principal photography, we have been fortunate to receive a matching grant up to $10,000 from the East Bay Fund for Artists! These funds will enable us to launch post-production this Fall! This includes editing, sound design, music composition and rights, color grading and tape-mastering; as well as festival submission fees and marketing costs.
After serving over 20 years behind bars for a robbery he committed at age 16, Eddy Zheng has dedicated his life to preventing youth violence, and now faces deportation to China. Contrary to notions of a “model minority,” the Asian and Pacific Islander American prison population grew 250% between 1990 and 2000. Providing a complex portrayal of its subject, BREATHIN’: THE EDDY ZHENG STORY will highlight a critical human rights issue facing the U.S. today: the alarming increase of Asian immigrants and refugees being incarcerated and deported.
All ticket sales and donations will be matched 100% by the East Bay Fund for Artists at this event!

We believe sharing Eddy’s story will help raise awareness about issues of criminalization, restorative justice, and deportation; and we hope you will join us in making this feature length film a reality. You can support this film simply by partying to Bandung 55, featuring KIWI ILLAFONTE, and dancing the night through to some of the Bay’s hottest DJs. Hope to see you out on the dance floor.
