San Francisco, California 94108: Artists Television Access
2pm, San Francisco Public Library - Chinatown Branch, 1135 Powell St
The Fall of the I-Hotel (Curtis Choy, 1983) 58 minutes, color On August 4, 
1977, thousands of people surrounded the International Hotel at Kearny and 
Jackson Streets, taking a last stand against powerful real estate interests to 
try and prevent the displacement of a thriving community. The Fall of the 
I-Hotel documents the culmination of a decade-long battle to save the 
International Hotel, whose residents, mostly Filipino and Chinese seniors, 
struggled to save their homes, aided by extensive support from community 
groups, activists, and residents citywide. Filmmaker Curtis Choy beautifully 
lays out the history and way of life of the elders living in the hotel through 
interviews and archival photographs, then guides a vérité immersion in the 
protests themselves. The nighttime cinematography in particular is 
extraordinarily rich on the 16mm print we'll be showing. The film's depictions 
of evictions, police/protestor face-offs, and the forced transformation of a 
make The Fall of the I-Hotel as relevant as ever today. preceded by Chinatown: 
Portrait of a Working Community (Alan Ohashi, 1978) 14 minutes, color This 
production of the Association of Chinese Teachers looks beyond the neon and 
gift shops of San Francisco's densest neighborhood to examine what life is like 
for its inhabitants. A musical score by Dan Kuramoto of the jazz group 
Hiroshima and cinematography by Curtis Choy help it rise above standard 
didactics. Choy's footage of International Hotel protests gives an early 
glimpse of the topic he'd grant greater depth in The Fall of the I- Hotel. and 
Sewing Woman (Arthur Dong, 1982) 14 minutes, b/w On the surface this is a 
straightforward account of the life story of one of the many women working in 
Chinatown garment factories 35 years ago. A narration delivered over images of 
her workspace as well as an array of archival photographs tells us the 
alternately harrowing and heartwarming details of her life growing up in
pre-Communist China, her arranged marriage into a "Gold Mountain family" and 
subsequent emigration to San Francisco. But the final moments of this Oscar- 
nominated short made by a San Francisco State University student (who'd later 
go on to create many documentaries & the book Forbidden City, USA) raise more 
questions than answers about this woman's life.
