The sixth Sacramento Asian Pacific Film Festival presents nine screenings that will explore this year’s festival themes of Black and Asian solidarity; culture and belonging; food and family; and justice and courage. Films include “Minari,” “Not Your Model Minority,” “Blurring the Color Lines,” “Lumpia With a Vengeance,” “The Donut King” and more. A special screening of “Free Chol Soo Lee” will feature a presentation honoring former Sacramento Observer investigative journalist K.W.
