Film Synopsis:

Chinatown Rising is a documentary that depicts the Asian American Movement through the eyes of young residents who were at the forefront of their community during its transformation. By challenging the traditional views of their elders, they took part in public protests and demonstrations between the 1960s and 1980s, which disrupted the previously peaceful streets during a time when the community was experiencing a shift in power. The film features personal interviews with these activists after 45 years, where they reflect on their experiences and contributions towards the cause of social change.

Chinatown Rising 《唐人街的崛起》是一部紀錄片,該紀錄片透過從曾經見證歷史性社區變革的年輕居民的視角來講述亞太裔美國人運動。在社區權力交換期間,他們在1960 年代至 80 年代的示威和抗議活動中公開挑戰長輩的保守觀念,令到曾經安靜的街道變得震蕩不安。本電影對這些倡議者進行了45年後的個人采訪,讓他們回顧自己的經歷和對社會變革事業的貢獻。
