Screening and Panel Discussion of “Far East Deep South”

March 16 @ 8:00 PM - 9:30 PM


Hosted by Columbia University Alumni of Chicago Chapter

Join Far East Deep South filmmaker Baldwin Chiu and Mabel Menard, President of the Greater Chicago Chapter of OCA – Asian Pacific American Advocates, in a panel discussion moderated by Dr. Chris Stacey about the film. The film is an award-winning feature documentary. Far East Deep South explores the seldom-told history of Chinese immigrants living in the American South during the late 1800s to mid-1900s through the eyes of Charles Chiu and his family as they travel from California to Mississippi to find answers about his father, K.C. Lou. You’ll enjoy watching this significant contribution to American history through the framing narrative of a father’s desire to “not want to know” and a family’s insistence on exploring the mysteries of the past.
