HAWAII PUBLIC RADIO (HONOLULU) -- “Chinatown Rising” filmmakers talk about found footage and social change in San Francisco.

Because Harry Chuck was a student at San Francisco State, he had access to a movie camera.

“As it was, I became so involved with the civil rights movement that had touched down in Chinatown that I just kept shooting, and I really couldn’t keep up with the editing so I just kept shooting,” he said. “Whenever I heard some commotion outside — gunshots, people shouting, chanting, marching — I would just run out into the street with a camera.”
