Presented by Indie Lens Pop Up join us for a screening of the movie Meet the Patels.
Ravi Patel is almost 30, an actor, and, worst of all to his traditional Hindu parents, still unmarried. After he breaks up with his white girlfriend, Ravi submits to his parents' wishes and allows them to play matchmaker. The true-life romantic comedy Meet the Patels explores the influences of culture and identity on the most intense, personal, and important part of one's life — love.
Film Screening Followed by a Panel Discussion and Reception (light refreshments will be served).
Stay for a lively conversation with members of your community after the screening. We will be sharing stories about love, traditions and culture expectations.
