In their documentary feature debut, Ben Klein and Violet Columbus team up with the lovable loudmouth Christine Choy, an Academy Award®-nominated filmmaker (WHO KILLED VINCENT CHIN?), professor, and activist whose iconoclastic opinions have inspired a generation of artists. Seeking closure on a project Choy had left unfinished thirty years ago, the trio revisit old footage and reunite with three exiled, pro-democracy dissidents from the Tiananmen Square massacre, whom Choy had interviewed decades earlier. Winner of the top documentary prize at the Sundance Film Festival, THE EXILES is a profound reflection on identity and belonging, and the fragile nature of record and remembrance.
Scheduled to attend: Directors Ben Klein + Violet Columbus, Subject Christine Choy, Executive Producer Chris Columbus
