In this first of several films directed by Wayne Wang, the Chinatown Afternoon Movie will be featuring "Chan is Missing".  Roger Ebert of the Chicago Sun-Times awarded the film 3 out of 4 stars and wrote that the film is a "whimsical treasure of a film that gives us a real feeling for the people of San Francisco's Chinatown" and it "has already become something of a legend because of the way it was filmed" that it demonstrates a "warm, low-key, affectionate and funny look at some real Chinese-Americans" and went to say "almost without realizing it, we are taken beyond the plot into the everyday lives of these people." 

Synopsis: Two cab drivers search San Francisco's Chinatown for the mysterious Chan, who disappeared with their $4000.
