Never Fade Away is the moving true story of a young Chinese immigrant who escapes his homeland in the 1940’s to come to this country, and how a radio and a waltz changes his life. Told through narration, music and dance, this short film shines a light on the healing power of music as well as the power of the immigrant experience. Featuring history-making dancer Chun Wai Chan and the exquisite ballerina Xiaoxiao Cao, their stunning pas de deux at the end will take your breath away. This story of heritage will bring you to tears and the music will make your heart soar. Stories like this are the ties that bind, and should Never Fade Away.
Directed by Donna Weng Friedman (USA)
