Ordinary Shadows, Chinese Shade
1988, 89:00 minutes, colour, English
In Ordinary Shadows, Chinese Shade, Wong uses his second generation Chinese-Canadian perspective to frame the Chinese here in the new world, Canada, and in the motherland, China. Through his own "family network" and several trips to the People's Republic of China, the artist gained access to the everyday, non-exotic world of the Chinese. A picture emerges of displaced cultures and traditions in transition.
