Josh Chuck is the Co-Director/Producer of the documentary CHINATOWN RISING. Josh grew up in San Francisco’s Chinatown and has worked in the community for over 16 years as a youth worker, filmmaker, and fundraiser. He has produced, shot and edited short films for the past 16 years, mostly sharing the stories of individuals who symbolize the rich diversity of the city, as well as organizations advocating for the needs of the underserved.

To Josh, the best part of travel is learning about other cultures, meeting inspiring individuals, and playing basketball with the locals.
