Lunchumentary: Chinese Couplets: A Family's Journey through Chinese Exclusion
Lunchumentary film screening of Chinese Couplets: A Family's Journey through Chinese Exclusion. Bring your lunch and learn something new. You feed your body. We'll feed your mind.
Part memoir, part history, part investigation, Chinese Couplets spans two centuries, three countries and four generations of women in this intimate story that reveals the impact of America's Chinese Exclusion Acts on journalist filmmaker Felicia Lowe's family. Lowe offers a nuanced, engaging approach to the debate that details the long-term, multi-generational effects of ethnically motivated immigration policies while imparting a cautionary tale of living with cultural pluralism in the 21st century.
