Special Screening of Golden Gate Girls:the untold stories of the first Chinese female film director in America

Released on April 20 in the “Hong Kong, Reimagined” programme as part of the ongoing  (2013) tells a story about the first Chinese film and fashion icon in Hollywood.

 

GOLDEN GATE GIRLS

dir. Louisa Wei | 2013 | 90 mins | Documentary | Cantonese, English | Hong Kong SAR

Available between April 20 – May 12

This documentary focuses on the life and works of Esther Eng (1914-1970), the first woman to direct Chinese-language film in the US, and the most prominent woman director in Hong Kong in the 1930’s. A San Francisco native and open lesbian, her contribution to film history is sadly overlooked – her 11 feature films mostly lost. After the retirement of director Dorothy Arzner in 1943 and before Ida Lupino began directing in 1949, Eng was the only woman directing feature length films in the US. The film paints a fascinating picture of how Eng’s career in filmmaking broke through gender and racial boundaries in Hollywood and Hong Kong, at a time when opportunities for Chinese women in the industry were few and far between.
