Snakehead is a powerful, fact-based gangland thriller, starring Shuya Chang as Sister Tse, an illegal immigrant who arrives in New York to find the daughter she abandoned years earlier. Dai Mah, played by Jade Wu, the deadly matriarch of a human trafficking cartel in Manhattan’s Chinatown takes her in and trains her to help run the enterprise; she’s a quick study. Filmmaker Evan Jackson Leong’s gripping actioner is an ode to female warriors everywhere. What She Said’ Anne Brodie spoke with Chang and Wu.
