DescriptionMADE IN CHINA is a personal film about a Chinese American's search for identity. The film touches on the racism experienced during the filmmaker's upbringing in a North American suburb and the prevailing stereotypes of Chinese people held by the white society she lives in. Determined to bridge the cultural divide between her heritage and her life in the States, Hsia sets off on a journey to The People's Republic of China to visit her relatives for the first time. This entertaining and moving film uses animation, home movies and live action to convey one woman's search for a new and multi-faceted identity.
