    Take a journey through the heart of Manilatown with Al Robles in Curtis Choy’s acclaimed lyrical portrait, “Manilatown Is in the Heart Time Travel with Al Robles” (2008). In this touching documentary, Choy chronicles Robles’ enduring commitment to supporting the manong generation, Filipino men who came to the West Coast as workers in the 1920s and 1930s, and preserving their stories through activism and poetry. This screening will be introduced and followed by readings by Robles’ nephew, poet Tony Robles.  

    Tony Robles is the author of “Fingerprints of a Hungerstrike” (Ithuriel's Spear, 2017) and “Cool Don't Live Here No More” (Ithuriel's Spear, 2015) and is co-editor and a revolutionary worker-scholar at Poor magazine.
