A special screening of Chinatown Rising, followed by a discussion with Joshua Chuck, producer and director.

Chinatown Rising is a documentary film about the Asian-American Movement from the perspective of the young residents on the front lines of their historic neighborhood in transition.

Against the backdrop of the Civil Rights Movement of the mid-1960s, a young San Francisco Chinatown resident, armed with a 16mm camera and leftover film scraps from a local TV station, turned his lens onto his community. Totaling more than 20,000 feet of film (10 hours), Harry Chuck's exquisite unreleased footage has captured a divided community's struggles for self-determination. Through publicly challenging the conservative views of their elders, their demonstrations and protests of the 1960s-1980s rattled the once quiet streets during the community's shift in power. Forty-five years later, in intimate interviews, these activists recall their roles and experiences in response to the need for social change.
