SEMIOTICS OF SAB
Directed by Tina Takemoto
A playful grammatology of Sab Shimono, an actor of stage and screen from the 1960s to the present.
Ali Kazimi / Asian American Panorama / Canada / 2016 / Documentary, History / 77 minsBy chance, director Ali Kazimi stumbled upon hours of home movies from 1936-1951 shot by Silas Fung, a commercial artist obsessed with the Chicago World’s Fair and the ceaseless documentation of his own family. The resulting documentary is a loving and invaluable portrait of middle-class Chinese America in the Midwest during the Depression era.
