Summary
This eye-opening documentary tells the story of the inhabitants of Seattle's International District, a unique neighborhood where Chinese, Japanese and Filipino Americans have come together as a political and social force. Archival photographs, oral interviews and period music link the past to the present. From 19th century pioneer Chin Gee Hee, a self-made millionaire and labor contractor, to Wing Luke, the first Chinese American elected to public office, Asian Americans have struggled to be a part of America society. Through stories of Japanese picture brides, Filipino cannery workers, Chinese paper sons and Japanese American World War II veterans, the International District becomes more than a restaurant and shopping center, but a major part of American history.
