Far East Deep South (2020)
Dive deep into an obscure period in U.S. history as Far East, Deep South leads you on a fascinating and emotional quest with a Californian Chinese-American family whose heretofore unknown family roots in Mississippi necessitate their journey there to unearth the past they never knew they had…and in the process discover a greater historical context, including the Chinese Exclusion Act of 1882, that affected their family history and how it forged a strong bond between the local Chinese and Black communities in the era of Jim Crow. This is one film you won’t soon forget
