Asian Fortune: A Chinatown with No Chinese left

Washington DC ChinatownCan you have a Chinatown with almost no Chinese left?

That’s the question facing Washington D.C’s Chinatown and the question answered by  filmmaker Yi Chen and her half hour documentary Chinatown, reports Asian Fortune.

 Chinatown tells the story of the neighborhood’s remaining residents–their resiliency and struggle to keep the community together.

The film takes us inside Chinatown’s Wah Luck House and tells a story through the eyes of the people who live there.

Whether they are teaching English, taking lion dance classes or fighting for tenant rights, their inner strength shows us what it means to fight for community.

You can read a review of Chinatown in Asian Fortune.
