Golden Gate Girls (PG)

USA/2013/88mins/subtitles/PG. Dir: Louisa Wei.

This highly personal documentary chronicles director Louisa Wei’s efforts to reconstruct the life and career of Esther Eng, a Chinese-American director born in San Francisco in the early 1900s. Today, Eng has been virtually forgotten. Wei’s documentary paints a fascinating picture of how her career in filmmaking broke through gender and racial boundaries in Hollywood and Hong Kong, at a time when opportunities for Chinese women in the industry were few and far between.

+ An introduction from Hiu M. Chan, Co-Director of the Centre for Interdisciplinary film and Visual Culture Research, Cardiff University, and a Q&A with Filmmaker Louisa Wei via Skype live from Hong Kong.
