TINO'S BARBERSHOP QUARTET
IN ACTION
Located on the ground floor of the historic
I-Hotel, Tino's served as a living room and
hang-out for the Pinoy bachelor society.  
Herein, a heartrending few minutes with
some real pioneers.

Begun with Curtis Choy's American Film
Institute Independent Filmmakers Project
grant, this near-textless short film of the
struggle for the International Hotel was
the starting point for the 6-year project
that would become The Fall of The
I-Hotel. This is the story about a lively,
vibrant community crushed by law.

MANILATOWN LIVES!
After the brutal evictions at the I-Hotel, the
Manilatown Senior Center found itself moved
around a lot before establishing a site, and
thus, this celebration of community life.
    
MANILATOWN LIVES!
THE RISE OF THE I-HOTEL THE RISE OF THE I-HOTEL
24 years after the destruction of the
International Hotel, the weed-strewn
empty lot (whose catacombs were
home to the homeless) is filled in and
shored up for the start of construction.
A new I-Hotel, a Catholic school, and
courtyard are built on top of a parking
garage.
