Independent Lens: One Night at the Grand Star; Double Exposure

Two short films with Asian-American themes: “One Night at the Grand Star” visits a nitery in Los Angeles's Chinatown, and New York artist Kit-Yin Snyder profiles herself in “Double Exposure.” The family-run Grand Star is no newcomer to L.A.'s nightlife scene, but its mix of jazz and hip-hop has made it hot. It's a “multigenerational social gumbo,” says series host Don Cheadle. It's multicultural, too. People, are “all alike,” says one regular, a white widow in her 60s, “all the human race.” Then Snyder, who emigrated to the U.S. from China as a teenager in 1949, ruminates on her dual national identities against a backdrop she calls “abstract video landscapes.” Says Cheadle: “You're never too old to wonder who you are.”
