The Joy Luck Club by Wayne Wang( Visual )

31 editions published between 1993 and 2013 in 6 languages and held by 2,659 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Four mothers. Four daughters. Eight stories. The Joy Luck Club is four women in San Francisco who have played mah jong together on a weekly basis to for forty some years. One of them, Suyuan, has died, and her daughter June is preparing to go to China. Auntie Lindo with daughter Waverly, Auntie Ying Ying with daughter Lena, and Auntie An Mei with daughter Rose are at the going away party. Born in China, the Joy Luck Club members came to America as young adults; their daughters are 100% American. The old days are seldom spoken about, and some things about those times have never been said aloud, but the experiences left behind color the hopes and expectations these women have for their daughters. If daughters become their mothers--no matter how much both parties desire that it not happen--daughters also become different from their mothers--despite all attempts to perpetuate the status quo

China : beyond the clouds( Visual )

1 edition published in 1994 in English and held by 159 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Filmmaker Phil Agland reveals the everyday drama and passion of contemporary China, a country "steeped in tradition and wracked by change," by focussing on life in one small town. Interwoven throughout the four segments of this documentary are the stories of a gang fight, in which one boy is killed, and the subsequent police investigation; a hill country teacher who leaves his charges temporarily in the care of a substitute while he takes a course to improve his skills; and the work of Dr. Tang who practices acupuncture and treats people with problems such as rheumatism and migraines as well as cerebral palsy. Although the focus is on the situation of children and youth in a changing world, the film does not ignore other elements of the community--the elderly, the entrepreneurs, the leaders of the "Street Committee, " etc.--or the history and physical splendour surrounding this small town in China

Hollywood Chinese : the Chinese in American feature films( Visual )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 56 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Documents the representation and involvement of the Chinese in American cinema from the silent era to the 21st century. While celebrating their contributions to American filmmaking a haunting and telling undercurrent of racism and stereotypes weaves its way in, suggestive of the difficulties that Chinese men and women found working in Hollywood--particularly in the early years. As a historical footnote, Dong also makes film history by rediscovering and editing in footage from what is alleged to be the first Asian-American film ever made: the 1916 "The Curse of Quon Gwon," directed by Marion Wong

Cities in China( Visual )

1 edition published in 1981 in English and held by 49 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Known for centuries as the center of Chinese culture and aesthetics, this Yangzi delta city has often been called the "Venice of the East" because of its many canals and bridges. This beautifully filmed portrait of the city leads the viewer through markets and teahouses, sweet shops and bookstores, rice paddies and fish stalls, and two of Suzhou's exquisite gardens.The film -- from the classic three-part "Cities in China Series" -- explores the process of silk cultivation, long a Suzhou specialty, and shows the preparation of a regional meal in a simple home kitchen. Two elegant young women sing in a garden, evoking the celebrated days of the literati gathering. An expressive storyteller recounts a traditional epic, enhancing his tale with the sound effect of drum rolls and charging horses.The film concludes with visits to two of Suzhou's famed gardens: the Net Master's Garden and the Garden of the Humble Politician. Whether sensed in these fabled gardens, or evoked in the banter of elderly gentlemen taking tea together, a persistent devotion to basic moral values in shown to be intrinsic to Suzhou life
