Cinema – Big Fight in Little Chinatown

In the early 20th century, Chinatowns began to appear in North American cities. Often bordered by affluent neighbourhoods, they are threatened by developers keen to exploit the land for its real estate value. Big Fight in Little Chinatown exposes attempted evictions and highlights the fighting spirit of communities defending their heritage. In today’s context, where anti-Chinese racism has been exacerbated by the pandemic, this intelligent film, brimming with emotion and levity, sets the record straight. (RIDM)
