Filmmaker, Esther Eng.
Esther Eng was born Ng Kam-ha on September 24, 1914 in San Francisco, California. She was the first female director to direct Chinese-language films in the United States. The majority of Ms. Eng’s films are lost, unfortunately. 

Following up on my last post about being a bit unimpressed with Pacific Rim’s supposed progressiveness, let’s consider these facts about Esther Eng’s career in film:
She directed a film in 1937 called “National Heroine” about a Chinese woman fighter pilot who goes to war against Japan and gives her life for the greater good of her country. This was in 1937, folks, and this pilot wasn’t a co-protagonist, she was the heroine.
Following up on the success of her war movie, Eng totally changed directions and made two Hong Kong films titled "Ten Thousand Lovers" and "Husband and Wife For One Night". I’m not even sure a woman director in Hollywood today could make movies with those titles.
Next she made a film called "Women’s World" consisting of an all-female cast, showcasing women’s success in a variety of different professions.
In 1939, she began distributing her films in Central and South America.
In 1941, she made "Golden Gate Girl" drawn from her experiences as a Chinese American woman in San Francisco.
She made two films in 1949 about inter-cultural and inter-racial relationships: “Too Late For Springtime” was about a Chinese girl’s relationship with a Chinese American GI; and “Mad Love Mad Fire” was a film shot in Hawaii about a mixed race woman and a Chinese sailor.
Every single one of Esther Eng’s movies were about women. She was also openly lesbian, which did not affect her film-making career because she came from a Chinese opera background in which this was accepted as normal. In the 1950s, she went into the restaurant business and opened five restaurants in Manhattan. She died of cancer at age 55 in 1970.
In April 2013, a documentary about Esther Eng’s life named “Golden Gate Silver Light” premiered at the Hong Kong Film Festival.
What was I saying again about Pacific Rim and progressiveness? Forget it. Just remember Esther Eng.

here’s a tip: if you start dating a depressed person, don’t be surprised if they are still depressed while they are dating you.
they’re not depressed because they’re single, and you are not an all-powerful cure for mental illnesses. just be there for them.

REAL

FUCKING

TALK

"Cartoons? Isn’t that for kids?" I look up and smile " Yes it is" Suddenly my appearance shifts and shrinks as I become a child. All my money turns to monopoly money and all my bills are gone. My adult responsibilities vanish, finally the spell is broken, and I am free.

  1. that one part where the whole movie

Quote
"

I don’t talk about my illness so that you will feel sorry for me. I talk about it so you will know what I’m going through, why I am the way I am. I don’t want your pity. I want your understanding.

And sometimes, I talk about it because I had a bad day and just like you, talking about the bad thing makes me feel better. I just so happens I have a lot of bad days and my illness is usually at the core of it.
