Friday, July 22, 2011, 8 p.m., $8 or $3 for students and children

777 Miramontes

Half Moon Bay, CA 94019

The bulk of the movie focuses on the life of one Chinese couple. Fifteen years ago Zhang & Chen left their young children in the care of grandma to take low-paying jobs in a factory a thousand miles away. They live in a dorm with no privacy, bent over sewing machines from dawn to dusk, to earn enough money to pay for a good education for their kids.  Canadian director Lixin Fan follows the family for three years as the now teenaged kids gradually detach from the life goals their parent have set for them. Professor Jenny Lau, a Chinese film scholar at San Francisco State, introduced the Film Society to this masterpiece and will handle introductions and handle post-screening discussions.
