The Fall of the I-Hotel

October 22, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Free

Join us for a free screening of Curtis Choy’s 1983 documentary, “The Fall of the I-Hotel.”

After Filipino-Americans labored to build America, their San Francisco Manilatown community was wiped out by urban renewal. Fifty seniors were forcibly evicted from the International Hotel when it was slated for demolition in 1981.

Narrated by late poet Al Robles, “The Fall of the I-Hotel” tells the story of dozens of seniors displaced by 300 cops in the dead of night, and the overall impacts of urban renewal.

58 min.
