Description

Free Screening SeriesDay 2:

 

Far East Deep South
(Larissa Lam & Baldwin Chiu, 2020, 76min, USA, English & Chinese w/ English subtitles, Digital)

A Chinese-American family’s search for their roots leads them to the Mississippi Delta, where they stumble upon surprising family revelations and uncover the racially complex history of early Chinese immigrants in the midst of segregation and the Chinese Exclusion Act era.

 

— Q&A to follow with filmmaker Larissa Lam

 

“Its intimate, as-it-happened cinéma-vérité style draws you in, and soon this family trip takes the twists and turns of a compelling detective story. A surprising, sobering history lesson, it is painfully relevant.” – Peter Keough, The Boston Globe
