Chinese Restaurants: Three Continents| 1hr : 20mins
Director: Cheuk Kwan | Producer: Cheuk Kwan
Focus Years: 2005 | Country: Canada
"Chinese Restaurants: Three Continents" tells the story of the Chinese diaspora through its most recognizable and enduring icon - the family-run Chinese restaurant. Film-maker Cheuk Kwan journeys to the "Big Island" of Madagascar, inside the Arctic Circle in Norway, and the Canadian Prairies, exploring the long history of Chinese migration and settlement in three continents. In the port city of Tamatave, traces of Chinese settlements are revealed as the film-maker visits the oldest Chinese immigrant on the fourth largest island of the world. In Tromso, in the land of the midnight sun, Chinese kitchen staff openly discusses their lives as Chinese restaurant workers in Europe - how they first entered Europe illegally and the loneliness away from home. In Outlook, Saskatchewan, the restaurant owner came as a "paper son" using a dead Canadian’s identity, following the footsteps of his predecessors who came to Canada to build the trans-continental railroad.
