Documentary – Dogpatch Ranch: The Origins of a Chinese American Family

This is the full documentary Dogpatch Ranch from Bay Area architect and filmmaker, Glenn Robert Lym. In this piece, he follows the history of his great-grandfather and great-grandmother arriving and settling into the Dogpatch Ranch, in the Potrero district outside of San Francisco during the late 1800’s. This is the story of how they managed to raise their seven children away from the protective Chinatown community during a very racist anti-Chinese era in American history.

A very insightful piece of Chinese-American history.
