Description

Filmed in 1916, this seminal work is the oldest known Chinese American movie and one of the earliest movies to have a female director. Never released and long-thought lost, the incomplete film was eventually rediscovered and restored. It was recognized as a culturally, historically and aesthetically significant film by the National Film Registry.
