Film Review: Chinatown The Chinatown in San Francisco is a place that compresses 5000 years of Chinese history into 150 years of American history. People live there had no choice but to survive on their own, so Chinatown became a fortress that everything about being Chinese in America American within this segregated district. During the earliest time, Chinese American had no true liberty, there are boundaries that they couldn’t go beyond. Chinese were not only denied entry into the country even as labor, but a series of repressive laws forbade Chinese people who were already here from to testifying in court, owning property, voting, marrying non-Chinese and working in government and other institutional agencies. The voice again the Chinese people is “we don’t want you.” Obviously, there is lots of brutal violent against the Chinese that their lives were threatened. That’s also another reason that Chinese had to stick together, take care each other, and fight back as a whole. The situation changed after the big earthquake in 1906 that destroyed almost anything.
