The Princess of Nebraska
Ling Li, Brian Danforth, Pamelyn Chee, Patrice Binaisa / Fiction / English, Mandarin
One woman faces an uncertain future.
After leaving her Beijing home to study in Nebraska, Sacha discovers that she is pregnant and travels to San Francisco for an abortion. However, her past begins to intervene … Director Wayne Wang (Smoke; Blue in the Face) takes a break from Hollywood fare to deliver an atmospheric character study of an isolated soul. Together with its companion piece A Thousand Years of Good Prayers, The Princess of Nebraska forms a thoughtprovoking exploration of cultural identity abroad.
