The documentary film “Far East Deep South” by Baldwin Chiu and Larissa Lam, husband-wife music and filmmaking team and previous CHCP Speaker Series presenters, will have its world premiere at this year’s Cinequest Film Festival.  The SF Examiner and the SF Weekly newspapers chose “Far East Deep South” to be among the “Staff Top Picks” of the 2020 Cinequest films.

This documentary tells the story of a Chinese American family’s search for their roots, leading them to the Mississippi Delta, where they stumble upon surprising family revelations and uncover the racially complex history of the early Chinese in the segregated South.

Following each film showing, there will be a Q&A session with the film director Larissa Lam and producer Baldwin Chiu.
