Chuck, 84, lived there and was the longtime director of Donaldina Cameron House, an organization that serves the needs of low- to moderate-income immigrant Chinese families in San Francisco.
Now he and Josh will be showing a documentary that took decades and a father-son collaboration to complete.
“We have a new generation of immigrants, and this generation has a greater sense of mobility,” Harry says.
Harry Chuck, now 84, looks through the slides of photographs he took approximately 50 years ago, documenting the early Asian American activism in San Francisco’s Chinatown.
“And I felt like, as his son, if I’m not helping him, then who would help him?”Before working on the film, Josh admits that he knew little about San Francisco Chinatown’s history of activism.
