Filmmaker Alvin Tsang will screen and discuss his documentary, Reunification, a personal tale of confronting the delicate images of a once intact family affected by immigration. Alvin examines the legacy of his family’s immigration to Los Angeles from Hong Kong through family photos, old videos and interviews.

Synopsis: When his mother and two siblings first emigrated from Hong Kong to Los Angeles in the early 1980s, six-year-old Alvin was forced to stay behind with his working, and consequently absent, father. Spending the following three years often alone in an empty apartment, he longed for his family’s reunification. However, upon Alvin and his father’s arrival to America, that dream was utterly and permanently shattered under circumstances the filmmaker has yet to fully comprehend to this day.
