In January 2020, the actress and rap star was the first woman of Asian origin to win a Golden Globe for Best Actress in a comedy, making history. The movie tells the story of an American-Chinese family, returning to China to visit their grandmother who only has a short while to live. We screened the movie¬†only one day after the premiere in film theaters in Belgium.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/3″][vc_custom_heading text=”Dutch-Chinese short movies” font_container=”tag:h4|font_size:18px|text_align:left|color:%232a2b2f” google_fonts=”font_family:Lato%3A100%2C100italic%2C300%2C300italic%2Cregular%2Citalic%2C700%2C700italic%2C900%2C900italic|font_style:400%20regular%3A400%3Anormal”][vc_column_text css=”.vc_custom_1593623475250{margin-bottom: 0px !important;}”]We screened several Chinese-Dutch short movies, produced through CinemAsia’s experimental FilmLAB, as local and independent stories of Asian origins still need to be told much more in Western countries and they definitely need and are worthy of a platform.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/3″][vc_column_text][/vc_column_text][vc_btn title=”Learn more about Legends of Liondance” color=”cms-gray” set_block=”” link=”url:https%3A%2F%2Fwww.studio-shen.com%2Fprojects%2Flegends-of-liondance%2F|title:Legends%20of%20Liondance||”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/4″][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]
