Yours Truly, Miss Chinatown – free to watch online

Here’s an interesting, award winning documentary, Yours Truly, Miss Chinatown directed by Daisy Lin that you can watch for free online.

Here’s the official synopsis:

Every year, two dozen women compete for the crown of Miss Los Angeles Chinatown, one of the oldest and best known ethnic pageants in the world. YOURS TRULY, MISS CHINATOWN uncovers the intimate stories of three young women who vie for the title Miss Los Angeles Chinatown, while struggling to navigate two cultures with conflicting values. The crown is a link to the past, while their lives are a sign of the times. As the spectacle unfolds onstage, so does the drama of their lives – there are no pat beauty pageant answers to real life struggles with love, family, culture, and life as a modern woman.
