FAR EAST DEEP SOUTH is an award-winning documentary that follows Charles Chiu and his family (including his son, producer Baldwin Chiu) as they travel from California to Mississippi to find answers about Charles’ father, K.C. Lou. Charles was left behind in China as a baby and is reluctant to discuss his family’s complicated past with his sons. The family’s emotional journey to the Deep South leads to surprising revelations and uncovers the racially complex history of Chinese families during the Jim Crow era and the interconnected relationship between the Black and Chinese communities. It’s an unforgettable story offering a poignant perspective on healing, race, immigration, and American identity. The film has been featured on CBS News, USA Today, PBS and more.
