Watch Random Acts of Legacy

E-mail Print PDF

A rare and illuminating glimpse of midcentury American life, this touching documentary introduces us to a unique Chicago family. From the 1930s on, first-generation Chinese immigrant Silas Fung captured his family's bourgeois life in copious 16mm home movies. The Fungs fervently embraced their adopted home, from fried-chicken picnics to an obsession with the 1933 World's Fair. The American family, the film implies, fits no single image.

Director/writer/producer Ali Kazimi is scheduled to attend both screenings. 

Screening October 19, 8:15 PM, October 20 2:00 PM
