Chan is Missing
(Wayne Wang, 1982, 80 min, USA, B&W, DCP)

Wayne Wang burst on the American indie scene with this revelatory breakthrough feature, the first film by an Asian American director to gain widespread attention. Toying cannily with the conventions of film noir, Chan is Missing follows a San Francisco taxi driver (Wood Moy) and his nephew (Marc Hayashi) as they search the city’s Chinatown for the elusive title character, who has disappeared along with their money. Their odyssey—by turns humorous, suspenseful, and surprising—becomes an investigation into both the mystery of a missing man and the intricacies of Chinese American identity.

 

Screen/Society screenings are free and open to the public. (COVID-19 Info)
