Phans of Jersey City

Fink, Abbie
A true gem of 1970s American cinema verite filmmaking re-released! The Phans of Jersey City fills a gap in our cinematic history of Vietnam by documenting a South Vietnamese family recently relocated to the United States. Evoking the realist style and domestic drama of An American Family, the filmmakers lived with the Phans in order to achieve a remarkably intimate and detailed portrait of a family in transition as well as a country in transition.
