FREE ADMISSION | OPEN TO THE PUBLIC

Part memoir, part history, part investigation, the filmmaker’s search for answers about her mother’s emigration to America during the Chinese Exclusion era reveals the often painful price paid by immigrants who abandoned their personal identity, the burden of silence they passed on to their offspring and the intergenerational strife between immigrants and their American born children.
Felicia Lowe is an award winning independent television producer, director, and writer with more than 35 years of production experience. “Carved in Silence” and “China: Land of My Father” have garnered numerous awards and have also been broadcast on PBS and abroad. A descendant of Angel Island detainees, she has been actively involved in the preservation of the Angel Island Immigration Station.
