The Forgotten Ones, a Heartbreaking Mini-Doc About Abandoned Elders in Manhattan's Chinatown

The Forgotten Ones is a heartbreaking mini-doc by filmmaker Mantai Chow that follows King-Sim Ng, an 80-year-old woman whose family abandoned in Chinatown over 15 years ago.

It’s difficult to be a senior citizen with limited resources in New York City. Mantai Chow’s short documentary, The Forgotten Ones, profiles elderly people who’ve lived in the city for decades, but who are struggling as they grow older alone. Abandoned by many, they cling to one another.
