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!

CREATE, CELEBRATE, COLLABORATE: The Grand's new TRACK Series TRACK 01 Bruce Leroy Ayebblee Fly Moon Royalty

Film inspires us at The Grand Cinema to meet as many filmmakers as we can, pick their brains, help them meet other creatives, and showcase their work. 

Obviously, since we’re in Tacoma, we’re particularly invested in our Northwest film community. Beyond our annual film festival, we’re also making more opportunities for filmmakers and artists to meet, connect, and collaborate.

This is the inspiration that led us to create TRACK - our local music video showcase sharing the newest and best in music videos created in the Northwest.
