Tino's barbersop quartet: Shows a Filipino American barbershop quartet performing in San Francisco's Manilatown
Manongs: Tenants of the I-Hotel: An atmospheric short showing Manilatown life and loss with the I-Hotel evictions with footage not see in "The fall of the I-Hotel."
Manilatown lives! The denizens of Manilatown are down but not out as they celebrate the opening of another temporary, permanent Manilatown Senior Center, and pay homage at the vacant I-Hotel site
Rise of the I-Hotel: In the mid-70's senior filipino residents of the I-Hotel in San Francisco were forcibly evicted to make way for an urban renewal project. The fight to save the I-Hotel became a landmark event of Asian American activism. This film presents historical footage juxtaposed with the opening of a new Filipino senior citizens' center built on the same sight nearly 30 years later
