The colorful and lonely struggle of Filipino workers is captured in the documentary Dollar a Day, Ten Cents a Dance. From 1924-1935, 100,000 Filipinos immigrated to America. Bent double in the California fields by day, the bachelor group formed a loyal community at night. Cock fights, dances, and poker games filled their idle hours. Using archival photos, film, and music, this presentation gives a real look at the struggling Filipino society. From a dearth of single women to racial discrimination, these new citizens fought their way through tough times to establish a viable working class.
