Still from FINDING KUKAN. OAKLAND—
Director Robin Lung investigates the compelling story of Hawaiʻi born Li Ling-Ai, the uncredited producer of KUKAN. KUKAN is a landmark color documentary about World War II China that received an Academy Award in 1942 before becoming “lost” for decades. In Robin’s film Finding KUKAN, she discovers a badly damaged print of KUKAN and pieces together the inspirational tale behind the remarkable accomplishments of Li and her cameraman Rey Scott. A dialogue with Director Robin Lung will follow the film. Event is free; donations welcome.
