Wong Kar-Wai selects Chinese American as one of his favorite things MAY 2015

Wall Street Journal article focuses on early film star Anna May Wong

In an interview for the Wall Street Journal, the Hong Kong film director Wong Kar-Wai has chosen the recent Scala book Chinese American: Exclusion/Inclusion as one of his ‘favorite things’.

Chinese American was published by Scala in association with the New-York Historical Society as a companion to the exhibition of the same name.

Wong, the director of acclaimed films including In the Mood For Love, Chungking Express, My Blueberry Nights and The Grandmaster, is artistic director of the new exhibition China: Through the Looking Glass at the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute, which opened on May 7. He used the Chinese American book as a reference for the section of the Met show about Anna May Wong, the first Chinese American movie star.
