Part of Articulate Emotion: Documentaries by Christine Choy, Dec 10 & 11, 2022
Choy and co-directors Long and Allen offer an intimate portrait of the lives of Chinese, African Americans and whites living in the Mississippi Delta. The residents live against the backdrop of the racist policies of the past and the histories of migration and labor linger in the present day. Exploring the region’s history of the Chinese community who were originally brought to the South to work on cotton plantations after the Civil War, the story of Mississippi Triangle is one of lineage, told through civil rights, religion, politics, and class in the South. Rare historical footage combined with interviews with Delta residents who were born and raised in the area reveal the lived experiences and shared memories of the American South. A Third World Newsreel production.
