In this gorgeous, multi-layered documentary about immigration and integration, ‘Random Acts of Legacy'' brilliantly weaves a rich tapestry of history and memory to offer an unusual portrait of a Chinese American family in middle America.
For many minorities, home movies used to be a luxury, and their rare existence lends insight into personal lives otherwise omitted from moving image history. Set in Chicago between the Great Depression and the post-war era, this award-winning film (Best Doc at CAAMFEST), peeks into the everyday life of a commercial artist and his trailblazing wife, to reveal the experiences of a first-generation Chinese family in America.
