Hollywood Chinese: Why Stop at the Doc?

December 3, 2019 at 7:30pm

Film Independent
5670 Wilshire Blvd., 9th floor
Los Angeles, CA 90036


Hollywood Chinese started life as an acclaimed documentary. Next came an exhibit at the Chinese American Museum, which is currently on display at the legendary Formosa Café in West Hollywood. Now, Arthur has just released the latest iteration of the Hollywood Chinese story: a lavish coffee table book. Using Hollywood Chinese as a case study, Film Independent presents a show-and-tell-all seminar where the filmmaker/author will share the secrets of his ongoing success in sustaining a living through expanding the life of his films. Arthur’s book will be available for purchase and signing.

FREE and open to the public. Validated parking in the building garage after 5:30pm.
