The Indiana University Asian Culture Center and the Asian American Studies Program will host Movement: Asian Pacific America as part of IU’s Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month 2016 celebration. IU has a well-established tradition of celebrating and recognizing—through a variety of educational and cultural activities—the history, cultures, and contributions of people of AAPI descent in the United States. For Spring 2016, we showcase films that highlight ideas and consequences of family, migration, and opportunity and invite audiences to consider the multifaceted vibrancies and complexities of AAPI individuals and communities. It also implies evolution and transformation—both within and beyond Asian Pacific America.
The series is sponsored by the Asian Culture Center, Asian American Studies Program, Department of History, Southeast Asian Studies Program, Office of Diversity, Equity, and Multicultural Affairs, and IU Cinema.
