Anna May Wong - The Actress Who Died a Thousand Deaths.
CASTING CALL for EAST ASIAN ACTRESSES for senior thesis short film/ multimedia performance.
A short film of a multimedia performance ("live cinema performance", in which content is filmed live and is projected onstage as part of the performance) interpreting the life and works of Anna May Wong (1905-1961), who was the first Asian American actress to make it in Hollywood. During her life and decades after her death, Wong was primarily remembered for the stereotypical "Dragon Lady," "China Doll," roles that she was often given, however she herself was very critical and dealt with it via her own wry sense of humor, diligent artistry, and dignity. Her life and career have since been re-evaluated, with a more nuanced take in Wong's representation on-screen and off.
