C4 is pleased to present “Made in China” (2008). Filmmaker John Helde sets out to understand his father Tom’s remarkable childhood as a white American growing up in 1930′s China. Navigating his father’s reticence, he tracks down Tom’s China-born peers, a unique community of Americans who grew up with a foot in two cultures. But when cancer intervenes, John’s hope for his father to return to the home he left behind fades – and John’s ensuing solo journey across modern China, guided by new friends, becomes an exploration of what “home” really means.

This film is 70 minutes long, and in English.
