Still image from the film In The Family
In the town of Martin, Tennessee, six-year-old Chip Hines has only known a good life with his two dads, Cody and Joey. But when Cody dies suddenly in a car accident, his will reveals that he has named his sister as Chip’s guardian. The years of Joey’s acceptance into Cody’s family unravel as Chip is taken away from him. In his now solitary home life, Joey searches for a solution. In the Family is a heartfelt story woven around “two- Dad” families, loss, interracial relations, the American South, and the human side of the law. (35mm presentation)

Director Patrick Wang is scheduled to be present.

To celebrate Asian Pacific American Heritage Month 2014, IU Cinema showcases “Movement,” a series of Asian Pacific American films. “Movement” invites audiences to consider the multifaceted vibrancies and complexities of Asian Pacific American individuals and communities. It implies evolution and transformation. And it denotes the physical and literal (athletic prowess, international migration), the metaphorical and interior (psychological, emotional), and the social and political (the rise of celebrity, grassroots organizing).

The series is sponsored by IU’s Asian Culture Center, Asian American Studies Program, Office of the Vice President for Diversity, Equity, and Multicultural Affairs, Departments of History, Department of Communication and Culture, College of Arts and Sciences, Center for Research on Race and Ethnicity in Society, IU GLBT Student Support Services Office, and IU Cinema.
