FROM SPIKES TO SPINDLES

Part of  Articulate Emotion: Documentaries by Christine Choy, Dec 10 & 11, 2022

New York’s Chinatown community is at the center of Choy’s examination of the Chinese American experience. Raw and gritty, Choy captures the energy, determination and resistance of the young and old who join forces in protest against twin forces of policy brutally and real estate developers. An uncanny and prescient vision into contemporary unrest, the streets, community centers and garment warehouses are ground zero for labor organizing and anti-gentrification movements.

Directed by Christine Choy. 1976. USA.  HD Digital. 46 minutes.

Preceded by Legal Smuggling with Christine Choy. Dirs: Lewie Kloster and Noah Kloster. 4 min. 2016. USA. Courtesy of the makers.



 

HOME APART: KOREA


A poignant look at the dire effects of a country divided, the impact of family separation and fear of annihilation in post-war Korea. With the armistice in 1953 Korea was separated into North and South and millions were pulled apart from extended families. Playwright Henry Hwang sets the scene for a look at the personal, social and political aspects of a nation torn apart. Homes Apart was the first US project to get permission to film in both South & North Korea.

Co-directed by Christine Choy and J.T. Takagi. 1991. USA/Korea. HD Digital. 56 minutes.
