Wong Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest (2011)
1h 30min · Comedy, Drama · 1 October 2011
After playing sold out houses from Alaska to Los Angeles to New York City, to Yale, Kristina Wong's unforgettable one woman tour de force performance of "Wong Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest" is finally captured in her first ever concert film through the thoughtful direction of Michael Closson. In this hilarious and whip-smart performance, Kristina takes a surprisingly raucous approach to addressing the high rates of depression and suicide among Asian American women-she tries to single-handedly save them all with her show! She fails fantastically at the task, creating hysterical laughter that descends into a sobering coda. It's one hell of a roller coaster ride! But don't worry... it's all fiction.
