This is the eighth and final strand of the programme Constellating Histories: Encounting Asian American Diasporas Onscreen, running from 6 January to 19 March 2023 at Oldham Theatre.
About the Programme
From Chinatown sagas, to experimental documentary, to musicals in Technicolor and punk-inspired chamber dramas, this series brings together a constellation of voices from the Asian American cinematic imaginary. The images, sounds, and narratives of these films express both a longing from the dispossessed for an unattainable homeland and a glee at having broken away from it.
