Asian Film and Family Film Screenings and Discussion, October 21 at Pitt.


via Hankook Ilbo.

The University of Pittsburgh's Alumni Association will host "Asian Film and Family Film Screenings and Discussion" on October 21.
Plan to attend a captivating screening of three short films that poignantly and candidly depict modern Asian family life. The lens through which each of us sees “family” is unique to our own personal experiences and is strongly influenced by the cultures in which we live. This cross-cultural presentation will enlighten participants on the differences and similarities we share when it comes to the human concept of family. The subject matter of the films may not be appropriate for children.

After the screening, Meghan Hynson from the Department of Music will do a hands-on demonstration and talk on the Indonesian angklung, a small, portable bamboo rattle that is pitched to the Western scale and played by shaking.

The cost is $20 per person and will include an alumni and friends networking reception.
It runs from 1:00 to 3:00 pm in the Frick Fine Arts Cloisters (map). Registration and payment may be completed online.
