Just in from CAAM: Acclaimed filmmaker Wayne Wang’s new film THE PRINCESS OF NEBRASKA will make its world premiere on YouTube® on Friday, October 17, 2008. The free release will go live on YouTube’s recently launched Screening Room, www.youtube.com/ytscreeningroom, a channel dedicated to premium film content.
In THE PRINCESS OF NEBRASKA, Sasha (Ling Li) is a foreign exchange student who finds herself pregnant. She’s the new generation of China, unmoored to traditions and history. As she says, “In America I learned a new phrase, ‘moving on.’ Tomorrow I can start a new page.” She travels from Nebraska to San Francisco to get an abortion, but in her exploration of the city in the next 24 hours she learns that turning a new page doesn’t necessarily mean turning your back on the past.
THE PRINCESS OF NEBRASKA is adapted from a collection of short stories by award winning author Yiyun Li.
