IN COLLABORATION WITH THE ASIAN/PACIFIC/AMERICAN INSTITUTE
YOUR DAY IS MY NIGHT (64 min., 2013, Dir: Lynne Sachs)
NYU Cantor Film Center, Theater 102, 36 East 8th Street
“I think of the bed as an extension of the earth,” says experimental documentary filmmaker Lynne Sachs. In this moving hybrid documentary/performance piece, the bed becomes stage as immigrant residents of a shift-bed apartment in the heart of Manhattan’s Chinatown are both performers and participants, storytellers and actors. Sharing their experiences as migrants and city dwellers, they reveal the intimacies and complexities of urban living.
Filmmaker Lynne Sachs and performers Linda Y.H. Chan, Ellen Ho, Yun Xiu Huang, and Sheut Hing Lee participate in a post-screening conversation moderated by Karen Shimakawa (Chair of Performance Studies at NYU, Tisch School of the Arts)
WEDNESDAY / OCTOBER 2 / 6:30PM
