Reminder Next Sunday: Come Together Home

Saturday, October 03, 2009

You've heard me talk about filmmaker Ivy Lin and her projects before - and her latest project Come Together Home - and just wanted to post up a reminder that the screening is only week away.

"Come Together Home"
A documentary by Ivy Lin


Block 14 in Lone Fir Cemetery, the first Chinese burial ground in Portland—and site of as many as 1,500 burials—now stands as a fenced off void of gravel after most of the remains were exhumed and shipped back to China in 1928 & 1949.
Sixty years later, Director Ivy Lin follows the footsteps of the missing 1949 shipment in an extraordinary journey from Portland to Hong Kong.

World Premiere
October 11th, Sunday, 7pm
Someday Lounge, 125 NW 5th Ave., Portland, OR 97209
*Q&A with the director following the screening

Get your calendars ready.
