Hey, wanna be part of a club? It's a special club. It's the launch of the Chinese Cinema Club at the Museum of the Chinese in America, and they're kicking things off with a screening of the award-winning film, Fujian Blue. It's happening this Friday, October 1 at MOCA.

The Chinese Cinema Club is a joint venture between dGenerate Films and MOCA to create a forum for dialogue around contemporary issues in Chinese cinema, culture and society, and to address the disappearance of cinemas in New York's Chinatown. Here are some more details:

FUJIAN BLUE, directed by Robin Weng, portrays two interweaving tales of youth crime and family crisis, shedding light on illegal immigration and human trafficking in China's Fujian Province. The screening will be followed by a discussion with Patrick Radden Keefe, author of THE SNAKEHEAD: An Epic Tale of the Chinatown Underground and the American Dream.
This sounds like the start of a really cool and important cinema series for Chinatown. For further details about the screening (as well as future films), and to purchase tickets to the event, go to the Museum of Chinese in America website here.
