Biographical Note

Flora Moon is a film maker based in Los Angeles, Houston and Boston. Born in Indiana to Chinese immigrants Wei Ning and Tack-Shing Li, Flora knew very little about her Chinese roots growing up until her aunt De Ping moved to the United States in the 1980’s. She learned about her family’s recent history and how they were targeted during the Communist Revolution, as well as their ties to the Tang Dynasty. After visiting the People’s Republic of China and meeting her extended family, Flora created a short documentary film, The Living Tree about her journey discovering her Chinese roots. The majority of this collection contains correspondence, financial information, grant applications and proposals, historical and family research, production notes, audio-visual materials and books pertaining to the research and production of this documentary. Other items include film scripts, periodicals and ephemera from Flora Moon’s film career.
