Finding Cleveland in South Pasadena, Memphis, Clarksdale

Los Angeles –

Finding Cleveland is a documentary short film that follows Charles Chiu and his family on an emotional journey as they take a trip to Cleveland, Mississippi to visit the gravesite of Charles’ father, KC Lou. In less than 48 hours, Charles has many surprising encounters with the local townspeople, who help fill in some blanks about the father he never knew. He also learns of the Chinese Exclusion Act, a discriminatory law against Chinese immigrants and the struggles his father faced in a pre-civil rights era.


The Finding Cleveland Experience comes back to the LA area and then heads back out to where it all started.  The Deep South!  If you’re in the area, we hope to see you there.  Join us for music, a special screening of the award-winning documentary and Q & A discussion afterwards.
