In the summer of 2021, I rode my bicycle alongside my 17-year-old brother and childhood best friend from the border of Mexico to Canada along the Great Divide Mountain Bike Route. Neither have biked more than 5 miles or spent much time in the outdoors.

Riding Han (한) is an adventure cycling film, with its foundational essence based on the Korean word, “Han” (한).

Riding Han captures our journey as three Korean-Americans, while exploring our identities through Han as Asian Americans, in a divisive time during the COVID-19 pandemic with anti-Asian hate on the rise. Han brought clarity that this is my time to create.
