DECOLONIAL SCHOOL AND FILM DEPARTMENT PRESENT: HOW TO HAVE AN AMERICAN BABY SCREENING AND Q&A 

Film screening and Q&A with film director and producer: Leslie Tai.

There is a city in Southern California that is teeming with pregnant women from China. How to Have An American Baby is a kaleidoscopic voyage, told through multiple perspectives, into the booming shadow economy of Chinese birth tourism that has taken over the Chinese enclaves of Los Angeles County.

Leslie Tai is a San Francisco-based, award-winning nonfiction filmmaker whose work chronicles the dreams, anxieties, and consumer desire of Chinese women in the state of in-between, or being two things at once. From 2006-2011, she lived and worked in the underground documentary film world in Beijing and Guangzhou, China. Her feature film debut, How to Have an American Baby, is a kaleidoscopic voyage behind the closed doors of the Chinese birth tourism industry in Beijing, Shanghai, and Los Angeles. It is currently in post-production. Her work been shown at Tribeca, IDFA, MoMA, Visions du Réel and New York Times Op-Docs.
