" A PERPETUAL STATE OF UNCERTAINTY"  - AMY TAN ON WHY SHE WRITES. AN INTIMATE PORTRAIT ON "AMERICAN MASTERS"

AMY TAN: UNINTENDED MEMOIR
Monday 8pm

Born to Chinese immigrant parents in Oakland, California in 1952, it would be decades before author Amy Tan would come to fully understand how her mother’s battle with suicidal tendencies was rooted in a legacy of suffering common to women who survived the ancient Chinese tradition of concubinage. However, this legacy provides Tan an inexhaustible well of creative inspiration, and her work has made her a global icon for Asian Americans.  The film offers an inside look at a brave artist whose humanity infuses all of her work.
