DIRECTOR(S): Ali Kazimi

STARRING:

GENRE: Documentary Film

SYNOPSIS: A rare and illuminating glimpse of midcentury American life, this touching documentary introduces us to a unique Chicago family. From the 1930s on, first-generation Chinese immigrant Silas Fung captured his family’s bourgeois life in copious 16mm home movies. The Fungs fervently embraced their adopted home, from fried-chicken picnics to an obsession with the 1933 World’s Fair. The American family, the film implies, fits no single image.
