1986 - No Vacancy

News reporter Naomi Hirahara is assisted on location camera shooting techniques by Cheng-Sim Lim while making her documentary NO VACANCY as part of VC’s Filmmakers Development Program.

NO VACANCY is about how two Asian American middle-aged men, faced with the depletion of low cost housing, find ways to survive in downtown Los Angeles’ Little Tokyo and Chinatown. This documentary is a poignant view of a segment of Asian American underclass rarely talked about.
