Synopsis

Since the days of New York’s tenement houses, working class people have shared beds, making such spaces a fundamental part of immigrant life. While living in a “shift-bed” apartment in the heart of the city’s Chinatown, members of a household share their stories of personal and political upheaval.

Our take

In this intimate hybrid documentary, Lynne Sachs crafts an invaluable portrait of the lives of Chinese immigrants in America. Empowering its participants to play themselves through monologues, theatrical performances, and conversations, the film is an imaginative work of collective history.
