Becoming American, the Chinese Experience from Bill Moyers

by Kathryn Park on 2019-05-10T08:00:00-05:00 in Films on Demand, American History | Comments

What does it mean to become American? What is lost and what is gained in the process? In interviews with historians, descendants, and recent immigrants, this powerful eight-part Bill Moyers series explores these questions through dramatic encounters of the Chinese in America. Includes Gold Mountain Dreams, Between Two Worlds,and No Turning Back—plus “personal journey” extended interviews with author Gish Jen, Nobel prize-winning physicist Samuel Ting, AIDS researcher David Ho, business executive Shirley Young, and artist and architect Maya Lin, through which the larger themes of the Chinese experience are made movingly personal.
