The Donut King Virtual Screening & Discussion

May 11 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

FREE Virtual Screening Event – Tuesday, May 11th at 6:30pm featuring a live post-screening panel discussion moderated by our host, Gitzel Puente. Panel TBA. This program is brought to you by Circle Cinema and Indie Lens Pop-Up.
Synopsis: Everything you thought you knew about the donut begins with Ted Ngoy. This is the unlikely story of a Cambodian refugee arriving in America in 1975 and building a multi-million-dollar empire baking America’s favorite pastry, the donut. This is a story about fate, love, survival, hard knocks, and redemption.
It’s the rags to riches story of a refugee escaping Cambodia, arriving in America in 1975 and building an unlikely multi-million-dollar empire. Ted sponsored hundreds of visas for incoming refugees and helped them get on their feet teaching them the ways of the donut business. By 1979 he was living the American Dream. But, in life, great rise can come with great falls.
The film will be broadcast on OETA/PBS beginning May 24th.
