Launch HyperCities

The mobile media tours of LA’s Historic Filipinotown (HiFi) were a  resounding success with the participation of scores of students, community activists, politicians, and members of the general public exploring the history of HiFi.  Participants followed the pathways of four immigrants through different periods in HiFi’s history on GPS-enabled Nokia Tablets and in an authentic Jeepney, a refurbished transport jeep from WWII.  The content was produced by Pdub youth, who worked with Public Matters, the Pilipino Workers’ Center, UCLA’s REMAP, and HyperCities, to produce the digital media tours.
