Come see Golden Gate Girls at the Wexner Center for the Arts on September 22nd at 7 pm. The film tells the fascinating story of filmmaker Esther Eng: the first woman to direct Chinese-language films in the US, the most prominent female director in Hong Kong in the 1930s, and for most of the 1940s, the only woman directing feature-length films in the US.
