I'm writing from Women Make Movies, the leading nonprofit distributor of films by and about women. I thought the members of this listserv would be interested in our newest release, MULBERRY CHILD, a captivating educational resource that Roger Ebert calls a "powerful and touching film, 3 (1/2) ***s." MULBERRY CHILD is a fantastic addition to classrooms, organizations and libraries focused on literature, history, Asian & Chinese Studies and family studies. To celebrate this release, WMM is offering a special promotion of 50% off related Asian Studies titles when you buy MULBERRY CHILD at list price.*
I'm including some additional info on MULBERRY CHILD and the related special offer. Please feel free to contact me with any questions, and thanks as always for supporting independent women filmmakers!
Winner of the Spirit of Freedom Documentary category at the Bahamas International Film Festival, MULBERRY CHILD is an adaptation to Jian Ping's book, Mulberry Child: A Memoir of China. Ping's memoir tells the tale of her experiences growing up in China during the Cultural Revolution. Written to bridge a growing emotional and cultural disconnect between Jian and her thoroughly Americanized daughter Lisa, the book recounts their family's journey of survival, from persecution and banishment to political rehabilitation, and its profound effects on Jian.
Narrated by Jacqueline Bissett, this moving and beautifully shot documentary artfully intertwines on-camera interviews with dramatic re-enactments, archival footage, and rarely seen photos of China under Mao. MULBERRY CHILD offers students and audiences alike a heartfelt window into and a greater understanding of the recent history of China, the Cultural Revolution and its impact on the Chinese and Chinese American immigrants.
