MORE THAN A FACE IN THE CROWD
Director Samantha CHAN | 25 mins | USA
A filmmaker explores the life of her 100-year-old great-aunt, Jane Chung, an actress who made a career for herself at a time when Asian Americans faced widespread racism in Hollywood. Jane has had parts in over fifty films and TV shows including Chinatown, When Harry Met Sally, M.A.S.H. and I Love Lucy, yet most of her roles are uncredited. Through the story of Jane Chung’s life and career, More than a Face in the Crowd reveals a larger untold story of Asian American actors and extras in Hollywood.
