Chinese Restaurants | KCET
Chinese Restaurants tells the story of the Chinese Diaspora through its most recognizable and enduring icon -- the family-run Chinese restaurant. In this fifteen-part series, Canadian filmmaker Cheuk Kwan takes us on a tour of restaurants around the world, bringing us into the lives of extraordinary families as they share stories of struggle, courage, displacement, and belonging, and what it means to be Chinese today.
Visit remarkable families in Argentina, Brazil, Canada, Cuba, India, Israel, Madagascar, Mauritius, Norway, Peru, South Africa, Trinidad and Tobago, and Turkey. Meet the many faces of the Chinese Diaspora as they celebrate their unique identities, forged by political and economic forces, their ancestors' legacies and the vibrant cultures of their chosen homes.
