Event Details

Join veteran filmmaker Felicia Lowe as she shows clips from her latest documentary, Chinese Couplets.

The story is shaped by her quest to unravel the mystery surrounding her mother’s emigration and the resulting web of secrecy and shame underlying her acculturation and achievement of the American Dream.

Please RSVP to attend.

Felicia Lowe is an award winning independent television producer, director and writer with more than 30 years of production experience. Lowe received an EMMY for Best Cultural Documentary for Chinatown: The Hidden Cities of San Francisco. The lively hour-long piece on the history of San Francisco’s oldest neighborhood has been broadcast numerous times on PBS. Her documentary Carved in Silence explored the experiences of Chinese immigrants detained on Angel Island Immigration Station and China: Land of My Father documented Lowe’s personal journey to China to meet her paternal grandmother; both films have garnered numerous awards and have also been broadcast on PBS and abroad and used in classrooms across the country. Lowe has taught film production and scriptwriting at San Francisco State University and Stanford University. She’s been actively involved with the preservation of the Angel Island Immigration Station.
