    If we plot the story arc of Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders in the entertainment industry, it would be easy to say that the last five years have been its climax. The mainstream T.V. show Fresh Off the Boat cast its sails wide and traveled deep into viewers’ hearts, while music stars like H.E.R., Japanese Breakfast, and Mitski landed on the charts and grabbed pop culture by the horns. And just this year, the film Everything Everywhere All at Once made history and dominated the Academy Awards. So, is this truly the peak of the mountain? For up-and-coming film composers like Brandon Lau, however, this is just the tip of the iceberg.
