Event Details

You are exclusively invited to a Chicago Filmmakers Members Only Rough Cut lab of RISE OF THE PHOENIX directed by May Tchao. 


Rise of the Phoenix


A compelling film that takes an intimate look at how four Chinese women struggle and take charge of their lives in an era of transition

About the project: 
Just because China dazzles the world with its annual double digit productivity, its GDP is still very much that of a developing country. The mainstream media seldom profiles the other China — the one that is rural, poor and still developing. My objective is to raise gender awareness by rendering a balanced and honest view by putting a spotlight on the struggles of China’s rural women who do not enjoy the same opportunities of their urban peers. Through the intimate voices of these women— as they navigate and negotiate their journeys to a better life, these compelling yet uplifting stories bear witness that gender equality is often fought for, not given.

RISE OF THE PHOENIX is May Tchao's debut feature documentary and a personal quest that began more than 12 years ago.  You are cordially invited to join us for a preview rough cut screening of the film and discussion with May and her team to provide feedback in the final stage of this project.

Chicago Filmmakers

Chicago Filmmakers is a 40 year-old media arts organization that fosters the creation, appreciation and understanding of film and video as media for artistic and personal expression, as well as media of important social and community impact. Our mission is to provide an opportunity for artists to make films outside the mainstream marketplace, to distribute and exhibit this work, as well as to build audiences and to increase media attention for it. Recognizing the impact of mass media in contemporary society, it is additionally our goal to provide culturally diverse audiences with alternative images to those reflected in mainstream media and to broaden access to media education to include those typically left out of the process.
