Miss Chinatown, U.S.A.:Joining the Miss Chinatown Pageant was the last thing on Katie Au's mind. She never learned to speak Chinese and didn't fit in with other Chinese-American girls.
An eccentric modern love story about Steven and Sandy- an aging white man with "yellow fever" who is obsessed with marrying any Asian woman, and the young Chinese bride he finds online. Debbie, a Chinese American filmmaker, documents and narrates with skepticism and humor, from the early stages of Steven's search, through the moment Sandy steps foot in America for the first time, to a year into their precarious union. Global migration, Sino-American relations and the perennial battle of the sexes, weigh in on the fate of their marriage in this intensely captivating personal documentary.
Please see the poster and join us for a fun evening of snacks, film, and discussion!
