The Way To My Father's Village

Richard Fung

1988, 38:00 minutes, colour, English


I was born and grew up in Trinidad, on the other side of the world from China. In the fall of 1986 I finally went to my father's village in southern Guangdong. This experimental documentary examines the way that children of immigrants relate to the land of their parents. It is about the construction of history and memory, the experience of colonialism, and about Westerners looking at China. It is the first tape of a two-part series.
