Empire of the Son @ the Cultch

Written by and starring Tetsuro Shigematsu (Huffington Post columnist, star of Spike/MTV’s The Deadliest Warrior, and former host of CBC’s The Roundup), Empire of the Son is Tetsuro’s personal story of his relationship with his father. Separated by a generation but connected by blood, Tetsuro and his father speak different languages and possess different values, but what ultimately keeps them apart is their similarities.

The draw: Ricepaper Magazine calls Shigematsu “the voice of our Azn generation”
