'Chinatown Rising' Documentary Film Screening
Sacramento Premiere of 'CHINATOWN RISING,' a documentary film by father-son team Harry Chuck and Josh Chuck Program will include screening of the film (1hr, 53min), followed by a short Q and A session with directors Harry Chuck and Josh Chuck, and possibly others (15min). Please note: This film deals with intense subject matter and there are two instances of profanity in the film. CHINATOWN RISING synopsis: Against the backdrop of the Civil Rights Movement of the mid-1960s, a young San Francisco Chinatown resident armed with a 16mm camera and leftover film scraps from a local TV station, turned his lens onto his community. Totaling more than 20,000 feet of film (10 hours), Harry Chuck's exquisite unreleased footage has captured a divided community's struggles for self-determination. Chinatown Rising is a documentary film about the Asian-American Movement from the perspective of the young residents on the front lines of their historic neighborhood in transition. Through publicly challenging the conservative views of their elders, their demonstrations and protests of the 1960s-1980s rattled the once quiet streets during the communitys shift in power. Forty-five years later, in intimate interviews these activists recall their roles and experiences in response to the need for social change.

Gallery
“What Were You Wearing?” Exhibition by Sac State’s Regeena Lewis
Regeena Lewis will be displaying “[an] Art Installation [that] seeks to dispel the myth that a person was sexually assaulted because of the clothes they were wearing” in the upcoming art exhibition, “What Were You Wearing?” The exhibit will be featured in The University Union’s Gallery from October 21st to November 14th during general hours. The Gallery is open Monday-Fridays from 10:30am-3:30pm and Wednesday-Thursdays from 5-8pm during the semester. According to the artists statement, this exhibit is meant to combat the iconic question in rape culture – “What were you wearing?” The artist states that “to ask this question implies that the survivor could have prevented their own sexual assault if they had just worn something that was less revealing or sexy. It lays the blame on the victim instead of where it rightfully belongs: on the perpetrator.” Rape culture is a very serious issue throughout the world, and the Sac State campus community aims to make our environment as safe of a place to be as possible. This Gallery exhibit will be displayed, in part, with the hope to bring awareness to this issue. According to Regeena Lewis: “This installation challenges participants to engage with the universal connection we have with clothing and reflect on what gives this specific rape culture myth so much power.” She leaves her viewers with the sentiment “If only ending sexual violence was as easy as changing our clothes. Instead it requires all of us to evaluate what enabled us as individuals and as a society to ask, “What were you wearing?” in the first place.” The reception for the exhibit takes places on October 24th, from 6-8pm in the Gallery, on the second floor of the University Union.
