Against the backdrop of the Civil Rights Movement of the mid 1960’s, a young San Francisco Chinatown resident, Harry Chuck, armed with a 16 mm camera and leftover film scraps from a local TV station, turned his lens onto his community.

Chinatown Rising is a documentary film about the Asian American movement from the perspective of the young residents on the front line of their historic neighborhood in transition. Forty-five years later, in intimate interviews, these activists recall their roles and experiences in response to the need for social change.

This documentary, which has an 85-minute run time, will be introduced by Josh Chuck, who will be present to answer questions and discuss the movie with attendees.
