Dr.Ming Wang And Terry Chen Talk About The Miracle In Sight | INTERVIEW

There are heroes with capes and there are also heroes with a white coat and Dr.Ming Wang is one of them. In the new Angel Studios film, Sight that tells us the story of Dr.Ming Wang and how he made it to the US as a student with $50 in his pocket. Today he is a prestigious eye surgeon that performed over 55K procedures that include sight restoration. Terry Chen brings us the older version of Dr.Wang that is learning to live with some of his childhood pain.

The Synopsis 

Starring Oscar-nominated and Emmy-winning Greg Kinnear (“Little Miss Sunshine”) and Terry Chen (“Almost Famous, “Falling”)—is based on the true story of Dr. Ming Wang, a poor Chinese immigrant who defies all odds to become a world-renowned eye surgeon in the United States. Set in 1970s rural China, a young Ming faces persecution and despair at every turn; but with the support of his dedicated family and his own unwavering determination, he finds his way to America, attends Harvard and MIT, and helps develop an innovative technology that restores sight in millions. Taking on the seemingly impossible challenge of helping a blind orphan, the resilient Dr. Wang must reconcile with his own traumatic past and face the harsh reality that the strength of his own will can only go so far.
