      Culture Films: Vanishing Chinatown

      After the turn of the century, the Chan family teaches themselves photography and sets up a photo studio in Chinatown San Francisco, chiefly for the Chinese-American community. The photos that they took speak to the hybridity of Chinese American life, including collages and double exposures to bring together families separated by the Chinese Exclusion Act, as well as depictions of Chinese Opera casts in Wild West and Prohibition period gangster costumes.

      Speakers: Filmmaker Gayle Yamada
