Patrick Chen’s The Last Tip

Asian-American director Patrick Chen's short film, The Last Tip, brings the gentrification of Chinatown to the forefront. Visually stunning, nostalgic, and romantic, The Last Tip is an emotional walk down memory lane for one man affected by a rapidly changing Chinatown. The film was recently screen in the 40th Asian American International Film Festival in New York, and we sat down with the director and cast to discuss their personal connections to Chinatown, and their thoughts on increasing diversity and meeting the demand for Asian-American storytelling through film.
