A Moment in Time, by Oscar-winner Ruby Yang, is a documentary about the experience of the Chinese in America through the films they loved — from Cantonese opera to Westerns. It brings back to a time when six movie theaters in San Francisco’s Chinatown crystallized the memories, the beliefs, the sorrows and aspirations of Chinese immigrant families. Chinese movies reduced an older generation to tears. They challenged the young to find out how they could be American and Chinese at the same time. It shows how Chinese movie theaters could be both a battlefield between the generations and a profound affirmation of what it means to be Chinese American.
