Join us at the Asian Art Museum for a screening of 3 People Project
Through the 3 People Project, the students of Donaldina Cameron House in Chinatown trained to capture on film the often untold immigration experiences of community elders. This project inspired a new respect and deepened connection between generations and resulted in five well-crafted films that reveal the fears, motivations and challenges the seniors faced in leaving their homelands.
Join us at the Asian Art Museum for a screening of several short films and a discussion with both student filmmakers and interviewees.
The event is free with general admission.
