Co-Director, Producer, Cinematographer
Former Youth Director and later Executive Director of Cameron House, Harry was an early mentor for hundreds of
Chinatown youth including author/activist Gordon Chin. Harry was the catalyst in Chinatown’s fight to save the
Chinese Playground from being developed into a parking garage, leading to the formation of the Committee for
Better Parks and Recreation in Chinatown. He was co-founder of the Chinatown Coalition for Better Housing,
which led the fight to develop the Mei Lun Yuen affordable housing project. He was appointed by four separate
mayors to city commissions which included the Public Housing Authority and Juvenile Justice Commission. Harry
was one of the first Asian American religious leaders to speak out for same-sex marriage. In 1981, he earned his
MA from the SF State University’s Film Arts Department where he served as a p/t student assistant in film history.
His footage for this film was shot as a student/activist and Chinatown Rising is his official return to filmmaking.
Josh grew up in San Francisco's Chinatown and has worked in the community for over 16 years as a youth worker, filmmaker, and fundraiser. He has produced, shot and edited short films for the past 16 years, mostly sharing the stories of individuals who symbolize the rich diversity of the city, as well as organizations advocating for the needs of the underserved. He currently directs the UPS Community Internship in San Francisco, an intensive community immersion program for UPS Upper Management, which focuses on the Chinatown, Tenderloin, and Bayview neighborhoods. He enjoys international travel, often spending months at a time overseas. To Josh, the best part of travel is learning about other cultures, meeting inspiring individuals, and playing basketball with the locals.
