The film focuses on two women from meager means who immigrated to the US nearly a hundred years ago, reinvented themselves and ultimately created the cosmetics, health, and beauty industry we know today.
This energetic and surprising film is the first ever profile of Paul Goodman, the mischievous anarchist and public intellectual, the bisexual family man of letters who authored the groundbreaking book Growing Up Absurd: Problems of Youth in the Organized System.
USA. 82 minutes. English & Mandarin with English subtitles. Seeking Asian Female is an eccentric modern love story about Steven and Sandy – an aging white man with “yellow fever” who is obsessed with marrying any Asian woman, and the young Chinese bride he finds online.
2013. 80 minutes. Color, DVD. Mandarin/Mosuo/Tibetan, Subtitled. Two spirited daughters from China’s last remaining matrilineal ethnic minority are thrust into the worldwide economic downturn when they lose the only jobs they’ve ever known. Left with few options, Jua Ma and La Tsuo leave Beijing for home, a remote village in the foothills of the Himalayas. But home is no longer what it was, as growing exposure to the modern world irreparably changes the provocative traditions the Mosuo have built around their belief that marriage is an attack on the family.
