The Search for General Tso poster1

Film: The Search for General Tso

7 pm

August screenings in the Bank of America Free Thursday Film Series conclude Becoming American: A Documentary Film and Discussion Series on our Immigration Experience. This six-week series is a project of City Lore, a cultural center for the arts and humanities based in New York City. It is funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities as part of NEH’s Community Conversations initiative, and features documentary film screenings and scholar-led discussions designed to encourage an informed discussion of immigration issues against the backdrop of our immigration history.

The National Hispanic Cultural Center is one of 24 organizations selected nationwide to participate in the Becoming American project. The scholar/moderator for the screenings and discussions at the Center is Dr. Gabriel Sanchez, Professor of Political Science at the University of New Mexico. The theme for Unit Six, presented on August 23, is “Immigration and Popular Culture.”

As much an immigration history as a culinary detective story, this ebullient documentary uses the ubiquitous Americanized dish, General Tso’s Chicken, as a lens onto a larger story of immigration, adaptation, and innovation to American popular culture. Early on, the film poses the question, “If Chinese Americans comprise only 1% of the U.S. population, why are there Chinese restaurants in almost every city across America?” The filmmakers seek the answer in a journey through the Chinese American experience from the Gold Rush and the building of the railroads to the age of Panda Express. On-air historians, chefs, writers, and enthusiasts provide accounts of the history of Chinese migration to America; the discriminatory 1880s Chinese Exclusion Act that forced emigrants out of the labor market and into small business ownership; the modification of “exotic” Chinese cuisine for American tastes; and the role of Chinese American community organizations in the dissemination of restaurants to the far corners of the nation to avoid competition and discrimination on the West Coast.

Alma: Arte, Legado y Medio Ambiente/Spirit: Art, Legacy and Environment
This U.S. premiere is a musical-visual journey to the remote area of La Ribeira Sacra in Galicia, Spain, where four musicians participated in an arts residency that allowed them to tune into the ancient forests and steep river canyons before performing before an audience in a 12th century Benedictine monastery. ALMA is a mobile residency program that facilitates experiences for artists to co-create in direct connection with nature. 2017; directed by Victor Hugo Espejo; Spanish with English subtitles; 14 minutes; not rated.

The film, recorded by a mobile solar-powered studio, was made at the invitation of the non-profit Fundación Raíces Vivas, which empowers indigenous youth through artistic expression and training in the use of multimedia technology. 2013; directed by Rafael Kotcherha Campora; Spanish with English subtitles; 23 minutes; not rated.

In September, the Bank of America Free Thursday Film Series showcases the ¡Globalquerque! International Cinema Series, presented in partnership with ¡Globalquerque!, New Mexico’s Fourteenth Celebration of World Music and Culture.

Latcho Drom, meaning “Safe Journey,” is a visual depiction and historical record of Romany life, told through musicians and dancers of India, Egypt, Turkey, Romania, Hungary, Slovakia, France, and Spain. The journey moves from India to Spain, dramatizing the nomadic nature of Romany culture and the variety of conditions in which the Romany people live, and takes place over a year’s time, from summer through fall and winter to spring. Via song and dance, young and old celebrate essential cultural values that have developed over countless generations and in diverse countries. The film illustrates similarities in travel habits, musical instruments and rhythms, and song themes, including celebration of travel and perceived rejection by sedentary locals. 1993; directed by Tony Gatlif; partial English translation of some songs (no dialogue or narration); 103 minutes; not rated.
