The Chinese Exclusion Act
Part of the Communities Film Series
Run time: 2 hrs 10 min
Directed by Ric Burns, Li-Shin Yu
With THE CHINESE EXCLUSION ACT, filmmakers Ric Burns and Li-Shin Yu tackle a complicated yet under told story about a significant piece of U.S. history — the only legislation barring an entire group of immigrants based on ethnicity and race. More significant, as highlighted through first-person interviews and archival materials, is the resistance against racism and the resilience of people that shaped the fabric of the United States well into the 21st century.
