Update #18

East and West

2 comments

Hello Everyone!

West. Last weekend, we had the pleasure of screening in San Diego as part of the San Diego Asian Film Foundation's Spring Showcase.  We had a terrific turnout, and took over the lobby of the theater afterwards to continue so many different conversations with our very engaged audience. Of particular note was a man who stood up in theater after the screening during the Q&A.  He said: I am 50 years old, I moved to the US when I was 25, and I feel somewhere between.  This film captured my experience and feelings perfectly and these girls spoke for me.  It was so great to talk further with him, and hear about the universal feelings that he responded to in the film.  A big thank you to Lee Ann Kim and Brian Hu of SDAFF and to FCC-San Diego for co-hositng!

Also from the west - a terrific review from our screenings in Portland last month:

Now we're headed east....to Providence, RI, where we'll be screening the film as part of Brown University's Year in China.  I'm thrilled that two of the girls in the film, Jenna and Fang, will be doing the Q&A with me.  And our editor, Katie Flint, will be joining us as well.  Katie has watched hundreds of hours of footage during the over four years of making the film, but hasn't met these two young women in person - so I know she's really excited.

      Thank you to Lisa, Jenna and Fang for speaking with us after the screening last night at Brown University. I was there with my 13-year-old from Jiujiang and it was a meaningful experience for both of us. She now wants to study Mandarin! She was also interested in the organization of adopted girls that traveled to London and Spain in the film but I've forgotten the name of it. Can you tell me what that group is? Thanks again for a memorable evening. Nina (nxdillon@gmail.com).

Rolling Stone called her music “fiery and virtuosic...” and Paper Magazine says "Haydn has a voice so sublime that it is truly like the fifth string of her virtuoso violin."
