    West Encounters East The Brazilian capital of Sao Paulo hosts the largest Japanese population outside of Japan. Within this little-known niche - the result of a century-old diaspora - lies a thriving arts community. This documentary explores the unique fusion of Eastern and Western artistic traditions in the works of well-known and emerging Japanese-Brazilian artists. It examines their lifestyles, traditions, culture and art while exploring the themes of immigration, dual identity, alienation and assimilation in their work. Art historian and collector Stella M. Holmes guides viewers through Brazil's art world, introducing the artists and discussing their modes of expression and creative processes. duration 56:46   STEREO TVG

    Little Manila: Filipinos In California's Heartland Filled with chop suey houses, gambling dens, and dance halls, Little Manila was the area in Stockton notoriously called, Skid Row, but it was also the closest thing Filipinos had to a hometown. In its heyday in the 30s, this lively area had the largest population of Filipinos outside of the Philippines. This program tells the story of Jimmy Ente, Jr., a longtime Stockton resident recruited to work in the asparagus fields. Jimmy, and many other like him, faced backbreaking work, low wages, and at times extreme racism to fulfill their dreams. Narrated by famed Filipino-American producer Dean Devlin, this documentary tells the immigrant story as Filipinos experienced it. duration 26:45   STEREO TVG

    American Masters [#2202Z] Hollywood Chinese From the first Chinese-American film produced in 1916, to Ang Lee's triumphant Brokeback Mountain nine decades later, this films brings together a group of actors, writers, directors - and iconic film images - to examine how Chinese people have contributed to and been portrayed in an industry that was often ignorant and dismissive about race. Moving far beyond the stereotypical and exotic images of Suzy Wong and Bruce Lee, such artists as Wayne Wang, Joan Chen, David Henry Hwang, Nancy Kwan and Amy Tan, among many others, share their experiences of being "the other." These storytellers and film clips from more than 90 films - some dating back to the 1890s - weave a rich tapestry and complex history. duration 1:26:17   STEREO TVPG

    Anna May Wong: In Her Own Words Anna May Wong was the first Chinese-American movie star. She started out in silent films when she was 17 and went on to make dozens of films in Hollywood, London and Berlin, co-starring with Marlene Dietrich, Anthony Quinn and Douglas Fairbanks. She was glamorous, talented and cosmopolitan. Yet she spent most of her career typecast either as a painted doll or a scheming dragon lady. Filmmaker Yunah Hong paints a vivid portrait of a Hollywood original, narrated in Wong's own words by actress Doan Ly. Generous excerpts from Wong's films, archival photographs and interviews enhance this richly detailed picture of a woman and her times. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG
