Talk: Ping Pong Playa

Jessica Yu visits Google's Mountain View, CA headquarters to discuss her film "Ping Pong Playa." Jessica Yu's film Ping Pong Playa tells the story of streetwise, swaggering Christopher "C-Dub" Wang: a suburban guy who waxes political on all things Asian American and clings to pro basketball pipe dreams. But when misfortune strikes his family, C-dub must overcome living at home, working a dead-end job and his worldly older brother, to run his Mom's ping pong classes and defend the family's athletic dynasty.
