Asian Pop-Up Cinema is held seasonally in the spring and in the fall. We are excited to host another screening this spring again.
A group of four telecommunications employees at Pegasus Broadband, headlined by Francis Ng in his most charming role in recent memory, begrudgingly join the company dragon boat team hoping such a pledge of loyalty will keep them immune from encroaching layoffs. Under the tutelage of the pretty young no-nonsense coach, Dorothy (Jennifer Yu) they learn not just how to really race, but also to confront their own impending mid-life crises. From nagging families and infidelity to unrequited love and elusive Andy Lau concert tickets, myriad demons are exorcised as our bungling protagonists overcome the odds and take charge in this life-affirming comedy-drama.
This is a FREE screening event, but RSVP is required. No walk-ins for this event.
You are invited to join us for a fun and casual event which provides African food, casual conversation, and a great movie! After the event we will have a Q&A and discussion on the work that is done by Esther’s Hope which provides educational scholarships for many young women.
An education will allow them to change the direction of their entire life. A life free of being sold for two goats to an older man who has numerous wives and children. This life is spent caring for children, that are not hers, and also the “husband” and his aging wives. It saves these young women from sexual mutilation and from having their front teeth knocked out as some tribes require.
Esther’s Hope works with the local families, the African Government, and donors who all contribute to these scholarships. We are pleased to announce on 2/9/20, we have been able to award scholarships to 151 hard working and grateful young women!
