New Happiness: An Immigrant's Story

New Happiness: An Immigrant's Story

"Recommended. Important issues are raised in this recommended program: the struggles of immigrants, cultural adaptation, and assimilation. Can be used successfully with those studying immigration, stereotyping or racism." -School Library Journal
"Recommended. The bittersweet nature of immigration is portrayed here with sensitivity and depth in this well-organized, well-executed documentary." -EMRO Review
Legal immigration. It's a fact of life for many people around the world. But imagine the difficulties associated with being an immigrant: to uproot yourself and your family, to leave your homeland, to move to an entirely different culture. This is the purpose of this first-person documentary, to address the difficulties associated with being an immigrant and to look for new happiness. Rose Lam Waddell, an immigrant from Hong Kong, re-tells hers and her family's story of survival and their attempt to find acceptance in their new home. Struggling with an inner tug-of-war about her own identity, she speaks with younger immigrants who defiantly reject traditional Chinese values; also she meets women of her own generation who have shed traditional shackles to enjoy their new independence. Also featured in the program are Martina Lee, Shirley Chung, Alban and Irene Lo, Mina Shum and David C. Lam. Produced by Face to Face Films. 04/09DE SCA 60 min.
Note: An edited version, New Happiness: An Immigrant's Story - Level 1, is available.
