“Six Chinese guys made it off the Titanic alive, and 24 hours later were written out of the story. That wasn’t an accident. That was deliberate.” The documentary, “The Six” reclaims this untold story. scmp.com/culture/film-t…
Too often, when I advocate for casting PoC in films, the naysayers rant about historical accuracy—that PoC didn’t exist in such and such event, time or place. But how many PoC stories, like six Chinese survivors of the Titanic, have been erased or untold?
And which stories *get* told in Hollywood? I am still waiting for feature films on the WWII incarceration of Japanese Americans and the murder of Vincent Chin.
Back to the six Chinese guys who survived the Titanic. What if Rose had fallen in love with a Chinese passenger instead? I would've preferred that storyline to the cheesiest Best Picture Oscar winner ever. #Titanic
