See & Do: Global premiere of ‘Your Day is My Night’ at MoMANEWS, News Right, SEE & DO, SLIDER Thursday, February 21st, 2013
This weekend, drop by the MoMA to catch the global premiere of “Your Day is My Night,” also titled “你的白天是我的黑夜.” It’s a “hybrid documentary” from filmmaker Lynne Sachs, combining scripted interactions, improvisation, and monologues based on performers’ life stories.
“Your Day is My Night” tells the stories of immigrants living in two “shift-bed houses” in Chinatown. Most of the performers were recruited through Chinatown’s Lin Sing Association, and play roles and tell stories close to their autobiographical selves. The bed becomes a catalyst for bringing forth the stories of the transnational, the urban, and the historical, as well as the intimate, the familial, and the personal.
Purchase tickets at MoMA’s website. Screenings run on Feb. 24th and 25th.
