YesAsia Editorial Description

In the documentary Golden Gate Girls, filmmaker Louisa Wei explores the life of Esther Eng, a woman who made history, but whose remarkable achievements history subsequently forgot. A queer, female Chinese-American filmmaker in the first decades of the 20th century, Esther Eng was nothing less than a trailblazing pioneer. The native San Franciscan became the first woman to direct a Chinese-language film in the United States, as well as Hong Kong's leading female director in the 1930s. More than a biographical documentary, the film uses the life and legacy of one incredible woman to examine politics, social mores and film history.

Product Information

Documentary filmmaker S. Louisa Wei sheds some much-needed light on a hidden piece of Hollywood, Hong Kong, women’s and Asian-American film history. One of Golden Gate’s strengths is its seamless ability to weave istory, Sino-U.S. relations and social standards together to allow for inference and context.

Elizabeth Kerr The Hollywood Reporter

Wei’s film is more than a loving tribute to Eng, set to the most amazing jazz music, but Wei also pays tribute to other pioneering and lesbian filmmakers such as Dorothy Arzner, who paved the road for many of our more recent female directors – gay or straight.
