Full Moon In New York

1989 / 88min / DCP

DIRECTOR: STANLEY KWAN

CAST: SYLVIA CHANG, MAGGIE CHEUNG, SIQIN GAOWA, JOSEPHINE KOO

Hong Kong cinema’s first openly gay filmmaker, Kwan (Rouge, Actress), directs a beautifully-wrought melodrama distilling the experience of Chinese diaspora through the lives of three women living in New York: meek, tradition-minded Mainlander Gaowa Siqin; ruthless Hong Kong businesswoman Maggie Cheung; and Chang’s Taiwan-born would-be actress. A rich and tender portrait of female friendship.

Full Moon In New York is screening as part of the Sylvia Chang series.
