SLAYING THE DRAGON: RELOADED
A two DVD set which includes the original and a new 30- minute sequel to the 1986 award-winning film,
SLAYING THE DRAGON: ASIAN WOMEN IN US TELEVISION AND FILM. The two films are a comprehensive
look at media stereotypes of Asian and Asian American women since the silent era of film. SLAYING THE DRAGON: RELOADED updates the clips and references of the original and addresses how Hollywood's visual representations of Asian women have changed with globalization and the transformation of America's population over the past two decades. The only collection of its kind, the two films are essential viewing for studies of gender, race and representation.
GOLDEN GATE GIRLS author and professor S. Louisa Wei
tells the story of filmmaker Esther Eng, the first woman to direct Chinese-language film in the US, and the most
prominent woman director in Hong Kong in the 1930's. A San Francisco native and open lesbian, her contribution to
film history is sadly overlooked - her 11 feature films mostly lost.
