Set in a mining town in the 1880s, Thousand Pieces of Gold portrays the real-life story of Lalu (Rosalind Chao), a young Chinese woman whose desperately poor parents sell her into slavery. She is trafficked to a nefarious saloonkeeper in Idaho’s gold country. Eventually Charlie, a man of different ilk, played by Chris Cooper, wins her in a poker game and slowly gains her trust. Aesthetically majestic and psychologically profound, it’s a story of two people who were never meant to meet each other, let alone fall in love. New 4K restoration by IndieCollect, under the supervision of directorNancy Kelly and Kenji Yamamoto.
