Chien-Ming Wang (1919-1922) was a young Chinese-American athlete. In her early twenties, she joined the US Army in 1936 and trained in a camp in Southern California. The harsh work conditions were what changed her life. A few years later, she returned home to attend school. She also played varsity baseball for the US Army. She was honorably discharged from the Army in 1946. Two years later, she moved to Los Angeles to work as a seamstress. She married an American, Albert Chandler, and they had three children, Eliza (Julie Kavner), Joanne (Frankie Lou Harford), and Steven (Donald C. McKenzie). The following year, she started her own firm, the Chien-Ming Wang firm. Later in her life, she founded the Wang Museum and became a philanthropist. She was a self-made woman. She learned that at the age of 25 she had given up on her family. She knew that her mother had been paralyzed from the neck down in a mine accident when she was 10 years old. This set her on a path of self-discovery. At the age of 32, she suffered a fatal stroke in 1995. She decided that it was time to start to live her life. She was walking the last mile of her life in her 50s. She had been blind for about 25 years and her life was at a crossroads. The biggest challenge for her was to find her self. She had the desire to have an education, to get back on her feet, and to pursue a career in education. She was a natural-born leader. The strength of the film was the intimacy of the stories. The individual stories were very powerful. The family stories were sad but realistic. Her son, Eliza, had had a very difficult childhood. Her daughter, Joanne, was burdened by her sister's refusal to participate in family life and the burden that came with it. Her daughter, Steven, had been a high school student until he was sent to prison. She was a young woman who had a difficult time adjusting to the adult world and made a commitment to herself to be a single mother. She wanted to raise her children on her own. They were a real family unit. The pain and difficulty of the two women's families was palpable. They were very close. But she, who had been blind for about 25 years, did not know whether she could see again. This documentary seemed to be about the power of self-discovery. In the end, this was not a happy film. The ending was very sad. Chien-Ming did not want to die, but she was very aware that she could not go on living in pain. She did not know if she could continue to live. So, she chose to live, but not as she wished. I think it was a good film. I thought it was realistic and truthful. There were some heartbreaking moments. They showed the difficulties in getting a job. The work environment was not ideal. Chien-Ming's style of living was very different from that of her American wife, who was unable to see

There is a cultural element to this documentary that will be very relevant to people from the mid-20th century and beyond. The story begins in 1949 and takes us back to Chinatown where the fortunes of two Americans in Chinese culture intertwine. We are introduced to Mieko (Chien-Ming Wang), who is an artist who is sent to the United States to work for the Institute for American Culture. The story then shifts to a scene in a Chinese restaurant where Mieko is given a letter of introduction from George C. Scott. It is then explained that the book that was written by C. Scott was intended to be a romance and it was rejected. In order to raise the money to complete the book, Mieko was to be married to George. Mieko, however, would rather travel to Paris to find a husband, and later travel to China where she would meet Mr. Scott. After traveling in China, Mieko is unable to find a husband and travels back to America. Mieko, in order to return to Paris, meets a family who she hopes will accept her. After spending a few months in Paris, Mieko is able to find a suitable husband. The best known person in the movie is Mieko, but there are many other people in the movie who speak in a very authentic Chinese accent and who are all well-known in their own countries. The greatest asset of this movie is the people who are making it. The people who made it are all amazing, and we are very fortunate to have them in the US today. The French actress Amelie Daubert, who plays Mieko's mother, is the one who is making the documentary and who has a huge amount of talent and who is now in her 80's. The director is David Seltzer, who was part of the French government during the Second World War and who was a great film maker of his own. The best actor in the movie is Michael W. Foley, who plays Mr. Scott, the eccentric, sad, but loving, American man who loves and accepts Mieko, who goes back to France to try to find a husband. Foley is a very good actor and has the ability to portray someone in the awkward situation of love and being a foreigner. The best part of this movie is that it is being made because of the effort of people all over the world who are passionate about the film. The producer is the same man who made the movie because he loved the project and wanted to help people understand the film. I urge you to go and see this movie, because it is very well made, informative, and is an excellent film about the relationship between two people. It is not a perfect film but it is a very good movie. Mieko is an excellent film, and I hope you will go and see it.

Director Lee and producer Sam go to China to cover a famous boxer who is already well known in his country. This documentary is a fairly decent piece of storytelling. Lee, along with his friend and producer Sam, is in some of the boxing matches. They all talk about what it's like to be in the ring and in the ring of a typical middle-aged male, or middle-aged female. Lee also goes to the gym and talks to trainers and fighters. They all talk about the pressures of the job, the physical and mental demands of the sport. Sam does some interviews with other fighters and tells stories of how they got into the sport. One of the fighters talks about being bullied by some older fighters. One of the fighters says he was given a bad story by his father and got into boxing. We are also treated to some clips from the sport, from the high points of a fighter's career. One fighter talks about how he was told he was lucky to get into the sport and took on the tough lifestyle. The film ends with the fighter talking about his life and some of his regrets and he talks about how he wants to leave the sport. This film does have a slow pace, but it was still quite good. Lee has done a great job in taking this kind of story and bringing it to the screen. As well, we have been treated to some beautiful images of the country and the weather. As well, there is some good music, but as with most documentaries, it's not memorable. As I've said before, this is not a great documentary and it's not going to be a great movie, but it is still worth seeing. For fans of the sport, this is a good documentary.

CHINATOWN'S "A FILM NOT TO BE MISSED" Is the only true-to-life account of the rock star and the people around him. Chien-Ming Wang was born to the sixties. From the age of 12 to 18 he struggled to make his own way in life. The book that followed his life is a fascinating portrait of the difficulties, sacrifices, and pressures that many children had to face in the 1960s. Chien-Ming was always an extraordinary person. He is a highly acclaimed performer, an excellent dancer, a talented pianist, and a great poet. While his marriage to Chen Chen-Hung did not work out, their daughter in law, Yung-Chieh Tsung, who was a great musical artist, was a good mother. Chien-Ming's mother was often left to raise the children alone. I have never met Chien-Ming but I know of his great love of music. It is sad to hear that he was a drug addict. I know that the songs he recorded were very popular with the people and he did not seek out drug use. In the book, Chien-Ming gives a few clues as to the reason why he was so poor. It appears that his brother-in-law, who had taken control of the family business, was being very abusive to his wife. At the same time, the wife's family was involved with drugs. Chien-Ming's mother died from a drug overdose. His mother-in-law was also dying from an overdose. I have been to numerous opium poppy fields in the 1970s and I have never seen anything like this. The words of the film were very important to me as a music lover. One is left to wonder if the film does justice to the musicians who were involved. When Chien-Ming was in his early 30s he seemed to have a unique style of songwriting. His first record was called "Born to Die" which had two songs that were very successful and very popular. It was difficult for him to find work and he became addicted to heroin. At the age of 44, Chien-Ming was still addicted to drugs and needed money. The film also shows the difficulties of being a migrant worker in the US. In the film, they point out that one of the main problems was a lack of infrastructure. Chien-Ming had to go to work every day and to clean toilets for the employees. When I first heard of this, I thought it was wonderful to see a film that was very truthful about the circumstances that came before Chien-Ming and his family. It is also interesting to see what went wrong in the lives of many of the people who knew Chien-Ming. One person who was particularly well known was a young man named Ron Clark. Ron was a big star and was working in the entertainment industry. Ron's sister was married to Chien-Ming's mother. It is a sad reality that these two people had to live in poverty while Chien-Ming did not. When the film was made, they gave some indication of what
