From the filmmaker Ivy Lin:
Come Together Home (my second feature about the history of Chinese in Portland) will be screened at Museum of Chinese in America in NYC Chinatown on Thursday, 11/17, 6:30pm. It’s a FREE screening with Q&A. If you are in NYC on 11/17, I hope to see you at the screening!!
Come Together Home is a story about the first Chinese burial ground in Portland’s oldest cemetery and the final journey home of the remains of early Chinese immigrants in Oregon. Come Together Home has screened 8 times in Portland last year and it was also selected to screen at two film festivals: Minneapolis St. Paul Asian Film Festival 2010 & Astoria International Film Festival 2010. Please see above link at MOCA website for trailer & synopsis.I hope you can help me spread the word for this screening at MOCA on Thursday, 11/17, at 6:30pm. Come Together Home is also available on DVD and it can be purchased here (70% of proceeds goes to Block 14 memorials fund).
