Chinese Couplets with Felicia Lowe

Chinese Couplets with Felicia Lowe In-Person

Join us for an evening on a film screening and Q&A with local filmmaker and resident Felicia Lowe. 

Part memoir, part history, part investigation, Chinese Couplets spans two centuries, three countries and four generations of women in this intimate story that reveals the impact of America’s Chinese Exclusion era on her family. Lowe offers a nuanced, engaging approach to the debate that details the long-term, multi-generational effects of ethnically motivated immigration policies while imparting a cautionary tale of living with cultural pluralism in the 21st century.

Lowe is an award-winning independent television producer, director, and writer with more than 40 years of production experience. She received an EMMY for Best Cultural Documentary for Chinatown: The Hidden Cities of San Francisco, and her documentary, Carved in Silence which focuses on the experiences of Chinese immigrants detained on Angel Island Immigration Station is used in classrooms across the country. In 1979, Lowe documented her trip to China to meet her paternal grandmother and made China: Land of My Father. All her films have been broadcast on PBS and garnered numerous awards. Her innovative works reveal the unique experiences of Chinese in America while underscoring our common humanity.
