"The Curse of Quon Gwon" (1916) is the earliest known Asian American film, and the first by a woman of color, directed and produced by Marion Wong. This pioneering movie features an all Chinese American cast. The black-white silent film is a melodramatic storyline filled with issues facing Chinese Americans, romance and intrigue. Dr. Gregory Mark, the grandson of the film's star Violet Wong, will present and discuss the film and his campaign to rescue and restore this long considered lost treasure. In 2006, "The Curse of Quon Gwon" had the distinct honor of being placed on the National Film Registry, the Library of Congress' list of the nations's most treasured films.
