My Life in China film screening

September 10, 2016 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

My Life in China

On September 10 at 1pm, please join CHSA at the Great Star Theater for a film screening of My Life in China. $10 general admission fee, $5 students with valid ID, and free for seniors 55+ online and at the door. Ticket sales end at 9/9/16 at 5pm.

My Life in China follows the story of (director) Ken Eng’s father who fled China during the Cultural Revolution in 1966 and made a life for himself in Boston with his wife and two children. The film draws a portrait of a father who made huge sacrifices for a better life, endured hardships in America, and asks the question “What does it mean to be Chinese and American?”

Ken Eng says of the film: “I wanted to honor and acknowledge the sacrifice of my father and all of our ancestors.  They provided us with the opportunity to get a good education so that we could have the freedom to chase our dreams. My Life in China is the result of my desire to tell my story in an authentic way.”

After the film screening join us for a Q&A with Ken Eng. To learn more about the film, visit mylifeinchina.org
