Abstract

Louisa Wei’s documentary is about Esther Eng, the most prominent woman director in Hong Kong in the 1930s and the first woman Chinese-language film director in the United States. A San Francisco native and open lesbian, Eng’s contribution to film history has been sadly overlooked and her 11 feature films are mostly lost. With a captivating archive of newly discovered images and interviews with those who knew her, Wei uncovers a rich chapter of film history that challenges gender and racial hierarchies in Hollywood and Hong Kong.
