Series: Movement: Asian/Pacific America
Amidst the social upheavals of the 1960s and ’70s, a young student from San Francisco’s Chinatown set out to document the political turmoil roiling his own community. Armed only with a 16mm camera and leftover film scraps, Harry Chuck captured the astonishing energy of Chinese American activists who challenged conservative elders and helped launch the Asian American Movement. Shot over 45 years, Chinatown Rising features exquisite unreleased archival footage to tell of this unprecedented moment in Asian American history.
