Full Moon In New York
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.
