In November, Lucky Rabbit Pictures was named the Artist in Residence at the Chinese Culture Center, one of the leading art institutions in San Francisco. Lucky Rabbit Pictures will be the youngest ever and first filmmakers in this residency and will be working out of the historic 41 Ross Studio in the heart of San Francisco’s Chinatown. At the beginning of December we had our Opening Night featuring live performances, immersive art installations, and educational portions. Tickets for entry were receipts proving a $5 purchase at a local Chinatown business which led to raising nearly $838.33 for our neighbors. We hope to build on this number.
We’ll be hosting a number of community centered programs and events throughout our residency. We are excited to reveal them over time and welcome anyone who wants to become part of the Lucky Rabbit family to join in. 

In the process we’ll be producing an ‘anti-documentary’ named “Bridge to Everywhere,” centered around the impending demolition of Portsmouth Square Bridge through the perspectives of the inhabitants of this urban jungle: the Chinese elderly, the skaters, and the pigeons. 

In addition, we will be developing a spec television pilot - an episodic science fiction set in the California ghost town Locke -- the last rural Chinatown in America. Inspired by 'The Twilight Zone,' the series will explore the only town made by the Chinese for the Chinese.

I still am processing how the last few months came to be. I was not supposed to be here. My father and his family immigrated from Hong Kong into SRO housing in Chinatown in 1967. One generation later and his son is an artist with a studio two blocks where they landed looking for a better life. Keep up with us, we’re going to make the best out of this opportunity. 

We made this documentary showing how a few kids turned 41 Ross into our new home - The Rabbit Hole. Watch it to learn why it matters for us to be in Chinatown and our big goals for these next few months.
