One Tree, Three Lives

Directed by Angie Chen

One Tree, Three Lives is an intimate documentary focusing on the Chinese American novelist Hualing Nieh Engle. Hualing Nieh Engle is a Nobel Peace prize nominee and author of 23 books of fiction and non-fiction, who has been a major influence on generations of writers in the Chinese Diaspora, and beyond.  At times sad, at times funny, this inspirational film reveals a woman of unusual charisma, integrity and determination, and a person in continual exile.


We are pleased to welcome director Angie Chen for a post-screening Q&A.

Supported by the Confucius Institute and in association with the Chinese Film Forum UK.
