SEWING WOMAN tells a universal story of one woman’s journey from an arranged marriage in old China to life as a garment factory worker for more than 30 years. The filmmaker’s mother, Zem Ping, narrates this superb film in an intimate yet powerful voice. Her reflections reveal the inner strength that helped her overcome U.S. immigration policies, family separation and the hard life of a first-generation immigrant.
