The movie Carved in Silence was a very provoking and eye opening documentary for me. It depicted the experience of the Chinese immigrants of Angel Island very well through the narration and the dramatic recreation. As an immigrant, the opening scene and the many stories told evoked many memories and reflections of my family 's journey and aspirations. The stories and descriptions in this documentary were very surreal because they were too hard to believe. For example, the scene when the interrogators asked plethora of trivial questions to the Chinese newcomers were extremely infuriating because it was a no-win situation for them. I think documentaries like this one are extremely important for us, Americans, to reflect on the shameful moments
