Chinese Couplets: Trailer

Chinese Couplets - :30 trailer from Felicia Lowe on Vimeo.

"Chinese Couplets" is an intimate family story that reveals the impact of America's Chinese Exclusion Acts on one family, over two centuries in three countries on four generations of women.

Felicia Lowe is an award winning independent television producer, director, and writer with more than 35 years of production experience. Her latest film “Chinese Couplets” is gaining rave reviews as it begins circulating in film festivals and community screenings.

A descendant of Angel Island detainees, she has been actively involved in the preservation of the Angel Island Immigration Station.

“Every family has their own story, often unspoken or not discussed and I’m told Chinese Couplets has helped open doors to those conversations.”Felicia Lowe
