OCA San Mateo Movie Talk: Meet the Filmmaker of "Jeweled Bird"

  • August 13, 2023
  • 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM
  • Online (via Zoom)

OCA (Organization of Chinese Americans) San Mateo Chapter will present a movie talk by Carol Lee Hall on Sunday August 13.

Carol Lee Hall is a local filmmaker who, along with her creative team in Los Angeles, is in the process of making a feature length historical drama inspired by true events that occurred in San Francisco during the early 20th century. The story revolves around the lives of young Chinese girls who were sold into slavery in Chinatown but freed with the help of Donaldina Cameron and the brave Chinese women at the time of unjust exclusionary laws against Chinese barring their legal entry into the US. The movie highlights the ongoing problems of human trafficking, race relations, and women's rights that are still relevant today. It offers today's generation of young women and leaders hope that the power of one individual can indeed make a difference in the lives of many.
