Century City Asian Film Marketing was created to bring the rich collection of Asian cultures to the U.S.A. via short independent films. Carole Wade, formerly WLS Channel 7 (Chicago) United Cerebral Palsy telethon coordinator and Hubbard Street Dance Chicago's Board of Directors' Founder, has overseen several projects including "Rat, Cat, Snake." It is a tale of one young woman's adventures as a member of the infamous Red Guards as she traveled throughout the countryside of China in 1968-1972.
In 1979 and 1980, Ms. Wade was a resident of the Chinese Palace for the Minorities in Beijing, China, where she chronicled firsthand word-of-mouth interviews with people from Mongolia.
Ms. Wade has spent over twenty years working in Asia as a creative entertainment event planner. Her first book, published in 1997, was a collection of short stories, one of which describes her mother's love for Lana Turner on the screen in 1959 to Carole's own amazing relationship with the actress from 1985 until the actress' death at age 74 ten years later.
In February of 2002, Ms. Wade donated a photograph of Lana Turner, singer Don Ho, and Ms. Turner's close family friends taken in Hawaii. The photograph was given to The Louis B. Mayer Library of The American Film Institute located in Los Angeles.
