"A Great Wall" is a 1986 comedy film written, directed and starring Peter Wang. It is the first American feature film shot in the Peoples Republic of China.

When a Silicon Valley Chinese-American executive goes back to his homeland of China for the first time in 30 years, he and his family encounter many culture clashes between the lives that they lead in the United States and the lives of their relatives in China. The finale of the movie includes an exciting table tennis match involving the Chinese-American son played by Kelvin Han Yee. This was Kelvin Han Yee's first film.
