Before The Joy Luck Club and Smoke, Wayne Wang made the remarkable Chan Is Missing.
Chan Is Missing follows the adventures of two cabbies on their search through Chinatown for a mysterious character who has disappeared with their money. Their quest illuminates the pitfalls of Chinese-Americans trying to assimilate into contemporary American society. Chan Is Missing was a radical film for its time in presenting an authentic portrait of life in Chinatown, a community which is deeply important to San Francisco but is little known to outsiders. Selected for permanent preservation by the National Film Registry of the Library of Congress. (1982, 80 min, 16mm)
