Christine Choy’s From Spikes to Spindles
13 Jan 2018 2pm - 3pm
As part of our Interwoven Histories project, Pavilion present Christine Choy’s 1976 film From Spikes to Spindles.
This raw portrait bears witness to the early days of an emerging consciousness in New York’s Chinatown community during the mid-’70s. We see a Chinatown rarely depicted, a vibrant community whose young and old join forces to protest police brutality and hostile real estate developers.
Woven through the film are reminders that this is a community built by workers: from the early labourers driving spikes into the transcontinental railroad, to the garment industry workers of the day.
The film will be presented against the backdrop of our current Interwoven Histories exhibition at Armley Industrial Museum.
Please check times with event organiser for any last minute changes.
A large proportion of Armley Mills is fully accessible.
