Golden Years – Trailer
Golden Years is a short documentary portrait of the Golden Lake Chinese Restaurant in the village of Golden Lake, Ontario. Tommy, Jack and their wives have taken over a small town Chinese restaurant in the later stages of their lives. They don’t make a lot of money but that’s not what they came for. Unlike a lot of Chinese restaurants, they work a short schedule serving up the kind of Chinese food that they know their predominately white clientele prefer. In this short piece, we see how they fit into the small town and how they negotiate their own Chinese culture.
