Not many of us living in Northern Michigan can imagine sharing our beds for half of the day with roommates who work different hours than we do. But immigrants living in New York City’s Chinatown do this regularly, saving money by living with others in shift-bed apartments. In this hybrid documentary, director Lynne Sachs uses autobiographical accounts and improvised performances to recreate the realities of life in shift-bed apartments so we can experience the world through these immigrants’ eyes, and hear their stories about personal and political upheaval. Visit the kitchens, bedrooms, wedding halls, cafes and mahjong parlors of Chinatown in this eye-opening film about the creative ways people find to get by. In Person: Director Lynne Sachs.
