CHAN IS MISSING
Friday, February 24–Sunday, February 26
(1982, DCP, 76m, English and Cantonese w/English subtitles) dir Wayne Wang w/Wood Moy, Marc Hayashi, Laureen Chew. Considered the first Asian-American feature to gain both wide distribution and critical acclaim, this singular comedy-drama-noir follows two San Francisco cabbies’ search for the title character, who has robbed them of $4,000. As a complex image of Chan emerges, a broader depiction of contemporary Chinese Americans comes into focus. At Perisphere, Andrea Buiser writes about identity, ambiguity, and the Chinese diaspora in Wayne Wang’s landmark film Chan is Missing.
