Experimental Documentary Series: Feature – YOUR DAY IS MY NIGHT

YOUR DAY IS MY NIGHT
Dir. Lynne Sachs // 64 min // 2013 // in Mandarin, Spanish & English with English subtitles

While living in a “shift-bed” apartment in the heart of New York City’s Chinatown, a household of immigrants share their stories of personal and political upheaval. As the bed transforms into a stage, the film reveals the collective history of the Chinese in the United States through conversations, autobiographical monologues and theatrical movement pieces. Shot in the kitchens, bedrooms, wedding halls, cafés and mahjong parlors of Chinatown, this provocative, hybrid documentary addresses issues of privacy, intimacy, and urban life.
