Did you know that the largest Chinese fishing settlement in the early days of the commercial fishing industry was thriving near us in Monterey Bay? Did you know that it was infamously burned down in 1906, and its residents forced to scatter beyond California?
Yet the Chinese are also an integral part of American society and history. They served and died in World War II, to a level commensurate with any ethnic group. Have you heard of those Chinese pilots who died in active duty in the 1940s, and were buried in the National Cemeteries?
Ding DIng TV welcomes Min Zhou, a filmmaker from the San Francisco Bay Area, who will present her new documentary "One-Mile Walk" and two trailers of her feature documentaries, "My 58 Uncles" and "Born to Fly." Following Q&A and discussions with Min Zhou, will be two panel discussions with prominent Silicon Valley media veterans and community leaders.
The audience will have the opportunity to win a copy of the book "Searching for the Lost Memories" signed by author Ann Lee.
While this event is free of charge, a donation of $20 or more per person is encouraged. All donations will be used to support the production of Chinese American documentaries.
