Part memoir, part history, part investigation, Chinese Couplets spans two centuries, three countries and four generations of women in this intimate story that reveals the impact of America&́#x80;™s Chinese Exclusion Acts on journalist filmmaker Felicia Lowe&́#x80;™s family. Lowe offers a nuanced, engaging approach to the debate that details the long-term, multi-generational effects of ethnically motivated immigration policies while imparting a cautionary tale of living with cultural pluralism in the 21st century. .."An epic tale spanning four generations of tenacious women, Chinese Couplets is Lowe&́#x80;™s most probing, soulful and accomplished documentary."Professor John Kuo Wei Tchen, Director, A/P/A Institute, New York University.."This is a story about family and identity, mothers and daughter, being immigrant and being American. Master storyteller Felicia Lowe lovingly brings them to light in ways that will touch audiences far and wide.&́#x80;.Professor Erika Lee, University of Minnesota Distinguished McKnight Professor
