A Bread Factory: An Interview with Filmmaker Patrick Wang A Bread Factory still Tyne Daly Elisabeth Henry

Texas-born, Taiwanese American, supremely talented and overwhelmingly undersung. Filmmaker Patrick Wang has received endless praise by film-goers and critics alike, and though he’s been releasing films since 2011 to high praise, it’s likely his work has flown beneath your radar. 

The Grand Cinema is pleased to not only play Wang’s latest but also welcome him back to Tacoma next Tuesday, April 30. The film is called A Bread Factory, named for the bakery-turned-performance-space on which the film centers. Set in a small fictional upstate New York town, The Bread Factory is at threat of losing public funding due to newcomer performance artists.

The film is a love letter to community theater (and communities), and feels more than appropriate to play at Tacoma’s own local nonprofit art house cinema. In the following interview, Patrick and marketing manager Tanya talked this, his transition from theater to film, “talkable art,” and more!

The Season for Movie Lovers spring_2018

Springtime is truly the season of the cinephile. 

Awards season has come and gone, studio blockbusters still have a month or two before they come into full swing, and instead, some truly strange and beautiful film masterpieces are released. These films tend to be unapologetic, idiosyncratic, surprising; they hold their own.

Spring Movies at The Grand Cinema spring_02

Springtime is an interesting season for movies at The Grand. The hubbub of awards are over, no one is bashing you over the head with summer hits, and some memorable films get quietly released. These films tend to hold their own better than the average movie and have an often distinct, not-your-run-of-the-mill personality to boot.
