Astonishing Little Feet reimagines a defining moment in Asian American history when sixteen-year-old Afong Moy, the first documented Chinese woman to arrive in the United States (and likely North America), was brought to New York by merchants to advertise their Chinese import business. The film investigates the audience’s own desire to ‘behold’ something as foreign and ‘exotic’ as her small feet and subverts the concept of “body horror” by asking the audience to question who gets to decide what is ‘horrific’ and why.
