Cardenas-Dow, Reference Librarian, University of California, Riverside, and  moderator Gary Colmenar, Librarian, University of California, Santa Barbara.

Chinese Couplets is part memoir, part history, part investigation, the filmmaker’s search for answers about her mother’s emigration to America during the Chinese Exclusion era reveals the often painful price paid by immigrants who abandoned their personal identity, the burden of silence they passed on to their offspring and the intergenerational strife between immigrants and their American born children.
