This essay will explore Hunt Hoe's documentary," Who is Albert Woo?" Maxine Hong Kingston's novel, "The Woman Warrior", and Mina Shum's film, "Double Happiness", in order to explore the complex representation of Asian identity in the west and the attempt by these three works of art to break racist stereotypes, which not only reduce and minimize Asian identity, but additionally negate the immigrant, cross-cultural experience.
