The Roots that Bind Us: Embracing Our Evolving Identities A Community Reflection on Lulu Wang's “The Farewell” Our families are the vessels that connect us to our cultural beliefs, traditions and practices across time and space. Through our family relationships, we navigate multiple layers of our evolving roles and identity. But what happens when we lose, or think we might lose, a loved one who is the rock and foundation of our family? Lulu Wang's award-winning movie, The Farewell (2019), captures the rich interwoven dynamics of culture, family and evolving identities. In this event, we invite the community to come together to look more deeply into a few selected sub-themes of the movie -- the globalized nature of our families and communities today, the rituals that connect us to our culture, the value for respect and reverence for our elders, and the struggles of questioning or embracing difference across age and culture -- to reflect on the continuing quest for our individual and collective identities in these times. Participants will be able to share their reflections in small groups following the film. Members of the AANAPISI CommuniTea will facilitate the small group discussions. Brief welcome by Dr. Pam Eddinger, President, followed by Introductory Remarks from Maria Puente, Professor, Behavioral Sciences Department, and Project Director, AANAPISI Grant Co-sponsored by the AANAPISI Grant and AANAPISI CommuniTea in collaboration with the Office of College Events and Cultural Planning and Office of Student Activities.
