Lost in Shanghai | Written by Jane Hutcheon and Co-directed by William Yang and Tasnim Hossain

Jane Hutcheon holds a camera up to a mirror.

With revolutionary war looming and colonial opulence fading at its fringes, a young girl watches from the prow of a Hong Kong-bound ship as her home and family fade in the distance. In Lost in Shanghai, the acclaimed journalist Jane Hutcheon steps back through time to meet that little girl – her own mother, Bea.

Bea wasn’t one to dwell on the past and rarely spoke of her unhappy childhood. But in 2018, with her mother aged 99, Hutcheon decided to fill in the gaps. Together they returned to Bea’s childhood, where an extraordinary Eurasian family both put down roots and lost their way. As Hutcheon dives further into her family history, from pre-Communist Shanghai to Bea’s own stint as a reporter at the South China Morning Post in the 1950s, she finds echoes of her mother’s life in her own.
