Far East Deep South is an award-winning documentary feature film that follows the Chiu family on a surprising journey through Mississippi in search of their lost family history. Their journey sheds light on the racially complex history of the early Chinese and the important symbiotic relationship that developed between the African American and Chinese American communities in the segregated South. Together, the family discovers how exclusionary immigration laws like the Chinese Exclusion Act of 1882 impacted their family, and they learn just how deep their roots run in America.
