The presentation of this California Council for the Humanities-supported documentary will be followed by a conversation with the director, Arthur Dong, an Academy Award nominee and triple Sundance award-winning filmmaker. A wine and light-fare reception will immediately follow the screening.
HOLLYWOOD CHINESE takes a captivating look at a little-known chapter of cinema: the Chinese in American feature films. Widely acclaimed at film festivals around the world, HOLLYWOOD CHINESE is fascinating and insightful. We are extremely pleased to be able to bring it to you for this private screening.
This screening is part of a day-long showcase of Council-funded films, starting in the morning with three youth-produced films screening at the Los Angeles Film Festival.* The Council is proud to play a role in bringing forth a wide range of quality films that convey significant stories and issues to nationwide audiences. In fact, the Council—through its partnership with the Skirball Foundation and individuals like you—is a leading supporter of documentary filmmaking in the country.
Please join us in honoring this work. Your interest in the Council is deeply appreciated, and your presence helps us build an engaged community of humanities supporters statewide.
