Season 8, Ep. 7: Futurestates (Part 1 with Greg Pak)

Saturday School Podcast

Throughout this season of Saturday School, we've been exploring the history of Asian American sci-fi films. So far, we've mostly focused on indie films from the 1980s to 2000s that overcame limited budgets and technologies to show what creative genre storytelling about Asian Americans could look like. Where was it leading? What would be possible if there was some organized funding around these stories? In 2010, the public TV and web series FutureStates, spearheaded by Karim Ahmad, commissioned filmmakers to create short films that imagined today's social issues in tomorrow's America. We're going to spend the next 3 episodes on FutureStates, starting with an interview with director Greg Pak, who was one of many Asian American directors who were asked to participate in the series. Greg Pak writes comics for both Marvel and DC - everything from the Hulk, Hercules, Darth Vader, Batman, Superman to Amadeus Cho. But because we are Saturday School, we spend all of our time talking to him about "Robot Stories" - which we started this season with! - and his FutureStates shorts. "Mister Green" stars Tim Kang as a government official who has failed to prevent the worst case scenarios of climate change. "Happy Fun Room" stars Cindy Cheung as a traumatized kids' show host trying (unsuccessfully) to warn the children of dangerous robot uprisings outside.

Episode 1291 - Greg Pak (I Belong To You/Motherland)!

Comic News Insider

In a last minute special episode, Jimmy and pal Greg Pak chat about his new illustrated book of poetry called I BELONG TO YOU/MOTHERLAND. It's about growing up half Korean in Texas and not quite belonging but totally bound to the flora and fauna of the place. It's also about lessons, memory and the death of his mother.  Great photos by both his mother and Greg with original art by comic book artists like Shing Yin Khor, Sean Chen, Ethan Young and more. Greg talks about the origin of the book as a libretto for a choral group in Texas that will perform it in a few weeks. They also chat about growing up as latchkey kids and having the freedom to explore and do things that were normal back then. A sense of belonging is a strong part of the book as well and Greg tells of us his struggles. It's also a lovely tribute to his mother and he talks of the joy of growing up with her and the goodness she instilled in him. A beautiful memoir indeed! The book is out June 25th and will be exclusively available for purchase via the Austin, Texas comic book shop Dragon's Lair. It will be available elsewhere shortly after. Also, get a hold of us! Thanks for listening!
