From Spikes to Spindles

by Christine Choy

$0.00

This raw, gutsy portrait of New York’s Chinatown captures the early days of an emerging consciousness in the community. We see a Chinatown rarely depicted, a vibrant community whose young and old join forces to protest police brutality and racial discrimination. Presenting stories of Chinatown residents, this film paints an overview of the community and its history, from the early laborers driving spikes into the transcontinental railroad to the garment workers and organizers.
