"Ricki's Promise" Produced by Dr. Changfu Chang
Room Amazon B, Rio Conference Center, Las Vegas, 8-11pm Thursday, November 19, 2015
¡°Who Am I?¡± is a common question for many. An 18-year-old Asian woman, born in China but raised in the U.S., embarks upon an emotional journey as she navigates the conflicting worlds of two cultures. Prepared over six years, this documentary film follows the journey of Ricki¡¯s return to China to live with her long-lost birth parents during a summer vacation. Ricki¡¯s Promise, written, directed, and produced by Dr. Changfu Chang, is a universal and poignant tale of history, trauma, and secrets that surround a family¡¯s struggles against a backdrop of Chinese and American culture, as well as underlying issues of gender and social ethics.
