Viewing Notes

Really enjoyed this short film about Frank Wong, his life and hobby creating miniature depictions of the Chinatown stores and homes/rooms that he remembers as a child living there. Very sweet with very nice HD digital photography. Had me reminiscing about my visits to San Francisco and Chinatown as well as my own childhood visits to Chicago Chinatown.
