With his 1982 indie classic Chan Is Missing, Hong Kong-born Wayne Wang became one of the first filmmakers to introduce a Chinese-American perspective to mainstream cinema. In a career that encompasses both scrappy personal projects and commercial triumphs, Wang has returned time and again to the immigrant experience. Overflowing with wit and humanity, his wonderfully warm, inventive films explore the tension between assimilation and tradition while celebrating the richness of Chinese-American identity.
