History à la Carte: This Is My Home Now
Wednesday, October 14, noon–1 p.m.
Bring your lunch; beverages provided.
This original documentary (not rated; run time: 30 min.) explores the lives of four Greensboro youths—members of three Montagnard immigrant families who fled their homelands in Southeast Asia and had to grapple with questions about self-identity, cultural heritage, and faith while forging a new future in North Carolina. A Q&A session with one of the featured youths will follow the film.
This Is My Home Now was produced by the Greensboro Historical Museum, with assistance from filmmaker Mariah Dunn Kramer and the Center for Asian American Media.
