Nailed It: Vietnamese & The Nail Industry

***Broadcast Premiere on PBS World Channel, May 2019***

Visit any strip mall in the United States, and there’s bound to be a Vietnamese nail salon. While ubiquitous in cities across the country, few Americans know the history behind the salons and the 20 Vietnamese refugee women, who in 1975, sparked a multibillion dollar industry that supports their community to this day. Weaving powerful personal stories with insightful interviews, Nailed It, a new documentary by director Adele Free Pham, captures an unforgettable and often hilarious saga born of tragedy, charting the rise, struggle, stereotypes, and steady hold Vietnamese Americans have on today’s multiethnic $8 billion dollar nail economy.

Reviews
“A captivating exploration of the survival of a community."
- Kat Hughes

"With stereotype narratives about immigrants and immigrant communities dominating public discourse, the film’s insight into intercultural relationships, female entrepreneurial pioneers, and the underlying refugee experience, is the spotlight we need now more than ever to remind us all that we are one nation of immigrants”
- Julia Liou, MPH Co-founder & Director of the California Healthy Nail Salon Collaborative

“Filmmaker Adele Pham's entertaining and urgent take on the refugee experience should be required viewing at a time when the immigrant's value to America is being fiercely debated. She is a necessary voice of the future.”
- Don Young, CAAM Director of Programs
