The documentary "Hollywood Chinese," by San Francisco native Arthur Dong, 53, is about the history of Chinese Americans in the movies. It is packed with film clips and revealing interviews with actors such as Nancy Kwan, Joan Chen and B.D. Wong; directors such as Ang Lee and Wayne Wang; and white performers who portrayed Asians, including - Luise Rainer, who won an Oscar for playing a Chinese peasant in 1937's "The Good Earth," and Christopher Lee, who portrayed Fu Manchu in a series of films in the 1960s.

"Everybody loves movies," said Dong, whose other films include "Forbidden City, U.S.A.," about Chinatown nightclubs, and "Licensed to Kill," about anti-gay hate crimes. "I made this film for film lovers. That's first and foremost. On a political level, it's about representation. It's about seeing each other as human beings."

The director Arthur Dong will be on hand for questions after the screening.

Venue: China Culture Center, Beijing, China.
