Filmmaker Katherine Tolentino created an eye-opening look at parachute kids, immigrant kids, mostly from China, who come to the United States in order to be prepared for college.  Loosely based on a true story, “Parachute” will stay with you long after the credits.  I spoke with Tolentino about the making of the movie.
