MBC Interactive Archive Project:
“AMERICAN INDIES OF THE 1980s”
2021 RESTORED RE-RELEASE!

(Presented by the Miami Beach Film Society)

 

In one of the genuinely “indie” socio-comedies of the 1980s, Chinese American Wayne Wang light-heartedly tells the story of “ABC’s” (American-born Chinese) and “FOBs” (“fresh off the boat”) and their allegiances to either Mainland China or Taiwan—with Jo (Wood Moy), a middle aged Chinese -American cabdriver in San Francisco’s Chinatown, and his young colleague Steve (Marc Hayashi). Coming from different areas and different generations, they have a very different idea of cultural identity and how to solve the mystery of a missing $4000. Wayne Wang’s career was built on this charming stand out film debut, now being re-discovered in an official and deserved 2021 re-release from Strand Releasing.
