Moon Kwan

National Portrait Gallery
Born Guangzhou, China

Moon Kwan was a pivotal figure in the development of the Chinese film industry who began his career in Hollywood during American cinema’s formative years. A native of China, Kwan initially moved to San Francisco before moving to Los Angeles in 1915 to pursue his interest in filmmaking. He found work as a writer and actor but made his principal contribution as an advisor on Chinese culture to director D.W. Griffith during the filming of the silent classic Broken Blossoms (1919). Returning to China in 1921, Kwan established a film company near Shanghai and later taught acting and scriptwriting in Hong Kong. In 1933 he co-founded the Grandview Film Company in San Francisco to make Chinese-language films for the American market. After opening a branch of the company in Hong Kong in 1935, Kwan directed more than fifty films there while continuing to promote and distribute Chinese films in the United States.
