Student Film Projects

The CAA Chinese Chapter is proud to support UC Berkeley's Department of Asian American and Asian Diaspora Studies (AAADS) by providing financial support to students working on projects that preserve Chinese American history. Students taking Professor Harvey Dong's Chinese American History class are given the option to make short films/documentaries (5-10 minutes) in lieu of traditional term papers.

Four film projects were completed in the spring semester of 2019 (click on hyperlinks to view them):

    Cal Alumni Association Chinese Chapter

    Chinese Hospital

    Angel Island

    SRO Housing and Children in San Francisco Chinatown

We are extremely proud of the work done by these students!

It is the intention of the Chinese Chapter to support student film projects each time the Chinese American History class is offered. Therefore, we welcome submission of topics for future projects. If you have family members or friends with information and material related to the history of Chinese Americans, please contact us!
