Documentary Screening in SF Chinatown this Weekend

Chinese for Affirmative Action is looking to get the word out on this event they're sponsoring with the Chinese Cultural Center on Saturday:

THE CHINATOWN FILES: A Special Screening and Panel Discussion with Ling-chi Wang and Rolland & Kathy Lowe.

Saturday, July 7, 2007, 4:00 PM
Chinese Cultural Center, 750 Kearny Street, Third Floor
No RSVP required

Here are excerpts from the blurb:

"THE CHINATOWN FILES, a powerful documentary that charts the effects of the Cold War on Chinese Americans during the 1950s and ’60s, took director Amy Chen and her film crew over 10 years to make... Well-researched and stunningly honest, THE CHINATOWN FILES includes archival footage taken from Chinese and American propaganda films, old cartoons stereotyping Chinese Americans, home movies of Chinatowns, and old photographs. In addition, a group of Chinese Americans are interviewed throughout the film, and their stories deliver this historical, cultural narrative... An educational film telling an oft ignored chapter of America ’s past, THE CHINATOWN FILES is a rigorous examination of the effects of Cold War fears on an immigrant community."
