Chinatowns across the country from New York to Seattle have seen dramatic and upending changes from gentrification, redevelopment, to the rise of Asian American hate and safety concerns during the pandemic. In this free online screening (two film links) and virtual program, CAMDC will take a look at Honolulu’s Chinatown in the 1960’s and 70’s and during COVID-19, through the lens of Robin Lung and Kimberlee Bassford and a discussion with the filmmakers.
"Nancy Bannick: Saving Honolulu’s Chinatown" and "My Chinatown, With Aloha," directed and produced by Robin Lung and Kimberlee Bassford, respectively, are short documentaries of about 10 minutes each. Professor Kenneth Lum, Chair of the Fine Arts department at The University of Pennsylvania’s School of Design, will provide a historical perspective and moderate the discussion. Dr. Joseph Young, Honorary Mayor of Honolulu’s Chinatown, will add his personal message on the program.
Registrants will receive links to view the films prior to the online discussion.
