One of the final movies to feature Tuesday was “Amy Tan: Unintended Memoir,” a documentary about the author of bestselling Chinese-American immigrant novel “The Joy Luck Club.”

“He was somebody I trusted so much… I felt he was never going to judge me, he was never going to pity me. He was just going to listen,” said Tan.
Producer Karen Pritzker added: “I am only sorry we’re not in-person, and that Jamie isn’t with us to celebrate.”
