From Spikes to Spindles

Dir. Christine Choy
1976, 50min, digital

 

Activist filmmaker Christine Choy (Who Killed Vincent Chin?) directs this revelatory documentary, which combines archival footage and interviews to trace the history of Chinese-American identity, the foundations of New York’s Chinatown, and the community’s rising political consciousness in response to police brutality and economic discrimination.
