2012 RTHK Documentary Segment on Chinese Laundries

RTHK, Hong Kong’s television company, filmed a 5-episode documentary in 2012 on Overseas Chinese.  The segment from the 7 minute mark up to the 11 min. 45 sec. mark  is especially powerful because RTHK used advanced graphics technology to “animate” the violence depicted in old cartoons from the late 19th century that used Chinese laundrymen as a stereotype to represent all Chinese immigrants.
