Chinese Restaurants Cheuk, Kwan; Kwoi, Gin


Webcast sponsored by the Irving K. Barber Learning Centre and hosted by the Asian Canadian and Asian Migration Studies (ACAM) program. Q & A on documentary filmmaking with writer/director Cheuk Kwan and cinematographer Kwoi Gin. These films trace the lives of the Chinese Diaspora through a popular icon – the family-run Chinese restaurant. Follow Cheuk Kwan and Kwoi Gin as they take us around the world, visiting families in Argentina, Brazil, Canada, Cuba, India, Israel, Madagascar, Mauritius, Norway, Peru, South Africa, Trinidad and Tobago, and Turkey. These families share stories of struggles, migration, displacement, and belonging, giving us diverse perspectives on what it means to be “Chinese” today.
