California Audiovisual Preservation Project (CAVPP) Original description from KCET: Profiles two local social critics as they give voice to strongly held views about the power and reality of immigrant Californians.
Part one: Mike Davis. Socialist author of the recent social/political history of Los Angeles, “City of Quartz.” Davis will introduce us to Sharon M.Y. Lowe, a Chinatown attorney and political activist; Nick Kolesnikow, a high school ESL counselor and Teresa Zarate, who runs a family center for immigrants at the Dolores Mission.
Part 2: Joel Kotkin, Author of “The Third Century: America’s Resurgence in the Asian Era,” and an instructor at Pepperdine University. In this profile we will meet Ofelia Montejano, a fashion designer; Soviet émigrés Anne Volokh, owner of Vesoft, a computer software company; and Safi Qureshey, Pakistani co-owner of Irvine-based AST Research, a multi-million dollar computer manufacturer.
Part 3: Kotkin and Davis provide a coda for the program in an intimate conversation.
