In April 2017, idealistic Chinese student Yingying Zhang came to the US to study agriculture. Six weeks later, she went missing. Filmmaker Jiayan “Jenny” Shi chronicles the circumstances around her disappearance and its devastating consequences on her family, friends, and community. All the more resonant and timely in the wake of rising anti-Chinese sentiment in the US, Finding Yingying is at first an intriguing mystery and, ultimately, a haunting and heartbreaking exposition reflecting the state of current US-Chinese relations.

"'Finding Yingying' is also a deft portrait of a family on the razor’s edge between hope and dread—precarious emotional terrain that the superb score, by Nathan Halpern and Chris Ruggiero, ably expresses."—Hollywood Reporter
