“The Chemical Factory” is a performative short animated documentary film that interrogates the lingering effects of the Cultural Revolution in China within the Chinese American community, linking this history to the present in terms of historical, intergenerational trauma, including the spate of anti-Asian hate crimes during the Covid 19 Pandemic. A Chinese immigrant mother recounts her experiences growing up during the tumultuous 1950’s in communist China to her American son. A lost Guangzhou China is brilliantly rendered using real-time graphics hardware and software for the first time ever.
