Upcoming Events At This Venue

June 28, 2018

This double feature will showcase two short documentary films, Nobel Nok Dah and This is My Home Now.

Nobel Nok Dah offers an intimate view into the lives of three refugee women from Burma, whose migratory paths cross in Thailand and eventually meet when they resettle to central New York.

This Is My Home Now documents the lives of four Montagnard youths whose families have come to America in the past decade from Asia. They live in two worlds—that of their parents and grandparents, who lived in the highlands of Viet Nam but fled from government persecution for their Christian religion and desire for autonomy—and one of constant learning and adaptation to be Americans in North Carolina.

This film screening is part of the Southern Culture Movie Series for international scholars and students, sponsored by the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Summer School and organized by the Writing Center, International Student and Scholar Services and the Media Resources Center.

All screenings begin at 6:30 p.m. and are free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served.

Start: June 28, 2018 @ 6:30 pm
End: June 28, 2018 @ 8:30 pm

Un Buen Carnicero (A Good Butcher) goes behind the courtesies of the butcher’s counter on the eve of Independence Day to explore the complex realities of immigrant life while celebrating America’s freedom and questioning its convenience.

Collards in the Cafeteria: Nestled in the agricultural heart of North Carolina, Gaston County schools are attempting to source 10% of their produce locally. Students love the addition of fresh, local strawberries and watermelons to their menu, but how about collards? Collards in the Cafeteria follows the journey of this nutrient rich leafy green from the fields to the county’s Central Kitchen, where they are cooked and processed in a Wonka-like fashion for cafeteria service the following day.

Wok Next Door: Joe lived next to Julia and Johnny for years and barely knew the couple — but the delicious fragrance of ginger and garlic coming from their kitchen window beckoned. Wok Next Door tells the story of how one day he knocked on their door to ask for cooking lessons. Turns out his love of Chinese food started in the womb — with these two very people.

All screenings begin at 6:30 p.m. and are free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served.
