An experimental documentary filmed in Monterey Park on February 3rd 2018. I've always felt at home in Monterey Park, a small patch of Chinese hills in the San Gabriel Valley, catty-cornered to East LA. Where vastly different cultures are separated by one or two blocks. Home of ghost malls and pastel treats. Boba shops are like check points and restaurants are open 24 hours a day.
I've always loved walking down Garvey street and admiring the buildings and aromas with the soundtrack of Mandarin chattering. So I decided to turn a camera on and film it at least once.
