Purchase a Chinatown Banquet DVD!
The Chinatown Banquet is a series of 45 short video documentaries about the neighborhood. It was created to raise awareness about the history, culture, and conditions of Boston's Chinatown, the city's most densely populated residential neighborhood. Featuring a menu of eight multimedia "courses," the Banquet is a compendium of Chinatown's history, unique flavor, political struggles, culture and physical environment. It is a model of how the visual arts can play an effective role in community development, education, and leadership development. While creating the Banquet, high school students gained knowledge and skills in media production skills, urban history, art, and community awareness.
