Descendants of early Chinese families relate history of long-lost neighborhood in latest film from the Denver Office of Storytelling ~
DENVER – The Agency for Human Rights and Community Partnerships is pleased to announce that the anticipated #IAmDenver documentary “Reclaiming Denver’s Chinatown,” produced by the Denver Office of Storytelling, is now available to stream online along with four newly released feature stories. All five films are available with Chinese subtitles.
The documentary premiered to a sold-out audience at the Denver Film Festival in November. Several additional community screening and talk back events are in the works to show the film on the big screen in the coming months across the Front Range.
Chinese immigrants made a home in Denver within a decade of the city’s founding. So why doesn’t modern Denver have a Chinatown? In “Reclaiming Denver’s Chinatown,” descendants of the city’s original Chinese families relate the history of Denver’s Chinatown, where it was located and what happened to what was once the largest Chinese enclave in the Rocky Mountains.
