The Joy Luck Club by Wayne Wang( Visual )

94 editions published between 1992 and 2020 in 9 languages and held by 2,833 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 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

Slaying the dragon( Visual )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 201 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Describes racial and gender stereotyping of Asian women in U.S. motion pictures as well as other filmic media, with "Reloaded" updating the original documentary by noting the effects of globalization and a changing population within the past 25 years. Includes interviews with actresses and other Asian American women who describe their experiences of such stereotyping. From the racist use of white actors to portray Asians in early Hollywood films - through the success of Anna May Wong's sinister dragon lady, to seductive Suzie Wong and the subservient '50's geisha girls, to the Asian American anchorwoman of today - these fascinating films show how images of exoticism and docility socially and psychologically impact Asian American women. "Reloaded" continues with looks at the past 25 years of representation of Asian and Asian American women in U.S. visual media - from blockbuster films and network television, to Asian American cinema and YouTube - to explore what's changed, what's been recycled, and what we can hope for in the future

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

13 editions published between 2008 and 2012 in English and held by 152 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
