New restoration of 1991 movie Thousand Pieces of Gold playing online as part of Harris Theater's online programming, April 24 - May 8.

The 1991 movie Thousand Pieces of Gold, set in the 1880s and about a Chinese woman sold into servitude in the American West, will stream from April 24 through May 8 as part of the Harris Theater @ Home's online programming. Part of the proceeds from tickets will benefit the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust.
Set in the 1880s, this film chronicles the journey of Lalu (Rosalind Chao), a Chinese woman whose financially desperate family sells her as a bride. She is sent to the United States, where she is bought by sleazy barkeep Hong King (Michael Paul Chan), who plans to make money off of Lalu by forcing her into a life of prostitution. Unwilling to submit to his demands, she begins her own successful business venture and captures the attention of the troubled but kindly Charlie (Chris Cooper).
Tickets are available online.
