We have had the amazing opportunity to film in San Francisco at the National Archives and at the Angel Island Immigration Station! We were honored to conduct interviews with Sandra Wong, a descendant of Wong Kim Ark. Thank you so much to Sandra for her time and generosity!
We interviewed many incredible, knowledgeable people in San Francisco! Many thanks to archivist Marisa Louie, Julie Soo, Judge Harry Low, Grant Din, Ben Fenkell, Laurene Wu McClain, and Charles McClain.
We filmed at the Angel Island Immigration Station, in the San Francisco Bay.
During Chinese Exclusion, Chinese immigrants and even US citizens were held on Angel Island awaiting entry.
Many carved poetry into walls while waiting for their cases to be heard.
