"Chan Is Missing" found again in New York

Wayne Wang's 1982 landmark American independent film "Chan Is Missing," now being revived at New York's Metrograph theater for a week's run in a new 35mm print - how appropriate that a film about San Francisco's Chinatown is playing in the New York equivalent - remarkably feels just as fresh, original, and revelatory 34 years later. Even though there were some antecedents, in 1982 what we now know as "Asian-American cinema" was still a relatively new and unfamiliar category to most movie audiences.

A 30,000-pound recreation of the Triumphal Arch of Palmyra, a 2,000-year-old Roman structure, was unveiled in City Hall Park Monday, where it will stay throughout the week, timed with the meeting of the General Assembly at the United Nations, organizers said.
MOCA's Exhibit on Chinese Food Tackles Authenticity and Identity

By Elena Zhang /
What is authentic Chinese food? The question may seem simple at first glance, but for many Chinese Americans, authenticity can vary widely depending on who you ask. For me, Chinese food has always been a way to connect with the history and culture of my immigrant parents. But in my search for "real" Chinese food, I've discovered that my identity as an American has as much to do with my idea of authenticity as does my Chinese heritage.
Meet Chinatown's New Art Gang

A revamped dumpling shop. An old walk-up tenement building. Next door to a fish market. These are spaces that make Chinatown a uniquely New York neighborhood--and have recently become home to a handful of independent art galleries, adding a whole new neighborhood to art lovers' itineraries.
