Hollywood Heritage and the Hollywood Foreign Press Association Present: Hollywood Chinese
On Wednesday, November 13th at 7:30PM, Hollywood Heritage and The Hollywood Foreign Press Association will present "Hollywood Chinese: The Chinese in American Feature Films". We will take an intimate look at the Chinese American role and influence in Hollywood, from some of the earliest films set in America's Chinatowns to the contemporary artists remaking the face of Hollywood.

Our special guest, author and filmmaker Arthur Dong, will host a guided tour of Chinese American film history, from the hyper-stereotyped portrayals of Chinatown Tong Wars to the exoticized romances starring glamorous actresses like Anna May Wong and Nancy Kwan. He will highlight the issues and challenges of Hollywood's history, including the controversial casting of white actors in Asian roles, known as yellowface. Hollywood Chinese shows how the industry has evolved, beginning with War of the Tongs (1917), billed to white audiences as planned and executed by the Chinese and ending with Crazy Rich Asians (2018),the first film with an all-Asian cast in a quarter century.

After his presentation, Mr. Dong will be signing copies of his new book "Hollywood Chinese" in the museum shop. We will also be hosting our famous $1 raffle and refreshments will be sold before the show on our front deck, so come hungry! See you at The Barn!
