Far East, Deep South

A Chinese-American family’s search for their roots leads them to the Mississippi Delta, where they stumble upon surprising family revelations and uncover the racially complex history of the early Chinese in the segregated South.

When Charles Chiu, a Chinese American man from California, travels to Mississippi to visit the grave of his father who abandoned him as a baby, he and his family stumble upon surprising revelations that change their lives. Along the way, they meet a diverse group of local residents and historians, who shed light on the racially complex history of the early Chinese in the segregated South. Their emotional journey leads them to discover how deep their roots run in America.

*Far East Deep South is mostly a family friendly film but please be aware there are a few racial slurs used in historical context as a few people give first-hand accounts of being subject to demeaning comments.

This screening is brought to you as part of the 2020-2021 Southern Circuit Tour of Independent Filmmakers. Southern Circuit brings the best of independent documentary film to communities across the South. We are pleased to be one of the Southern communities screening Southern Circuit films this season.
