REUNIFICATION

Reunification, the return of Hong Kong to China, changed the fate of many families living in Hong Kong at that time. Many Chinese people chose to immigrate to US for better opportunities. But there was price for that. Alvin Tsang, the second generation Chinese American immigrant, made a film about his family. Tsang spent 17 years recording and producing this documentary. It is not only a searching for himself but also a microcosm of the the struggling and striving of many immigrant families.
