Chinatown Rising BAAFF Post-Festival Screening

Chinatown Rising BAAFF Post-Festival Screening

Presented by Boston Asian American Film Festival at Emerson Paramount Center Bright Family Screening Room

The Boston Asian American Film Festival presents its post-festival screening of the documentary CHINATOWN RISING, directed by father-son duo Harry and Josh Chuck.

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.

The film will be preceded by the short documentary, “Everyone Counts: Active Censorship.”

The Boston Asian American Film Festival (BAAFF) empowers the Asian American community through film by showcasing Asian American experiences and serving as a resource to filmmakers and the Greater Boston Community. Our film selections highlight both historic and contemporary stories in an effort to deepen understanding and appreciation of Asian American experiences. Hosted in Boston, Massachusetts, this festival attracts people from all over the country every year.
