Q&A with Sylvia Chang following the 7:15pm screening on Sunday, May 20.

Chang directed René Liu, in her film debut, to an award-winning star turn as a Chinese girl who arranges for a mock marriage with an older American alcoholic (Daniel J. Travanti) in order to stay on with her boyfriend in New York. A strikingly compassionate drama that shows a rare understanding of both the immigrant plight and the bittersweet disappointments of old age, with top flight performances by both leads.

Xiao Yu is screening as part of the Sylvia Chang series.
