In 1979, a Vietnamese refugee shot and killed a white crab fisherman at the public town docks in Seadrift, TX. What began as a dispute over fishing territory erupted into violence and ignited a maelstrom of boat burnings, KKK intimidation, and other hostilities against Vietnamese refugees along the Gulf Coast.
Set during the early days of Vietnamese-refugee arrival in the U.S., Seadrift examines the shooting and its dramatic aftermath—reveals the consequences that reverberate today.
Cinematographer Colin Harrington expected in attendance.
