We are a Family

We are a Family

One-Hour HD Documentary (2020)

A trip to China for a bi-cultural family living in San Carlos, California brings a new awareness and appreciation for their cross-cultural ties.

In 2001, Jane arrived in America from China to pursue her professional dance career with the Chinese Cultural Dance Company in San Francisco.  Soon after she met her husband Rick, a division manager with a Tree Company in San Jose. They and their 11 year old Chinese American daughter Michelle travel to China to experience the shared values, customs, cuisine and family ties that bring them closer as a family.

The creative aspect of dance and the metaphor Rick uses to describe the structure of family is amplified through their journey as each experience brings them closer to their ties abroad.

In the end it becomes clear that their trip to China was more of a homecoming rather than just a visit to a foreign country.  Their experience was like a well rooted tree. Solid and strong. A foundation between two cultures like no other.
