VIETNAMERICA FILM SCREENING, SUNDAY, DEC. 11, 2 TO 5PM
After the Vietnam War, over two million Vietnamese escaped in search for freedom. Hundreds of thousands died before they even reached land. Forty years later, "VIETNAMERICA" follows martial arts master Hoa Tien Nguyen’s return to Southeast Asia to search for the graves of his wife and two children. Having escaped on a boat with 75 of his family and friends, Hoa is the lone survivor. Throughout his return, Hoa and a diverse group of Vietnamese survivors as well as historical scholars explore the reasons for the Vietnamese diaspora. Join us for a special screening of this documentary and Q&A session afterwards with Executive Producer Nancy Bui and Director Scott Edwards. Free popcorn provided; additional food available for sale.
