Event description

Description

Join us for dinner and a movie, and discussion to follow. We will be showing the self made documentary called First Person Plural. In 1966, Deann Borshay Liem was adopted by an American family and sent from Korea to her new home in California. There the memory of her birth family was nearly obliterated, until recurring dreams led her to investigate her own past, and she discovered that her Korean mother was very much alive. Bravely uniting her biological and adoptive families, Borshay Liem embarks on a heartfelt journey in this acclaimed film that first premiered on POV in 2000. First Person Plural is a poignant essay on family, loss and the reconciling of two identities. Join us for a discussion afterwards that will touch on identity, loss, perceptions and more.
Pizza, Salad and dessert will be provided.
Recommended for children age 12 and up along with all parents, workers, and community members.
