Directed by Wayne Wang | 1993

With Ming-Na Wen, Kieu Chinh, Tsai Chin

25th Anniversary screening!

Wang achieved mainstream success with this ravishing adaptation of Amy Tan’s beloved novel about the intertwining hopes and trials of four immigrant Chinese women and their American-born daughters. The first (and, until this year, only) studio film to feature a majority Asian-American cast is a moving reflection on history, memory, and the ways in which one generation’s joys and sorrows are transmitted to the next.
