The Fields Corner neighborhood of Dorchester, MA is home to the largest Vietnamese immigrant and refugee community in the Northeastern United States with over 10,000 Vietnamese Americans all living within a 1 mile radius.
In the summer of 2003, I interned at Viet-AID: a non-profit that is focused on community development in Fields Corner. I worked on an arts outreach project called "Our Voices" which introduced me to the the Vietnamese American youth in the community. Their stories as well as my own experiences are the inspiration for these videos.
