The Problem With Apu

The New Commons Film Series presents the controversial 2017 documentary THE PROBLEM WITH APU. Written by comedian Hari Kondabolu (alumnus of Bowdoin College), the film explores the problematic cultural stereotypes that characterize Apu (the famous Indian convenience store owner on THE SIMPSONS, voiced by Hank Azaria). THE PROBLEM WITH APU takes on the real-world impact of this character on Indian-Americans.
