Synopsis

'How Far Do Leaves Fall?' is part of a wider oral history project by CMHA supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund. It presents a fascinating personal history of Chinese immigration in London. How did it feel leaving your home and arriving in a strange country where you didn't speak the language? Can you truly live comfortably, embracing all elements of your heritage, whilst living in a modern British society? In oral history interviews Chinese immigrants discuss issues of community, belonging and assimilation, whilst the second and third generations describe life between these two rich and vibrant cultures and what their roots and heritage mean to them.
