It was an invitation Leisle Chung, of Colorado Springs, couldn’t refuse.  To fly out to Los Angeles and support her filmmaker brother during the Oscars. Her brother is Lee Isaac Chung, director of “Minari,” which won for Best Supporting Actress. The movie is based on the Chung family’s real-life story of moving from Colorado to a farm in Arkansas.
