"The understanding of a culture comes from hearing the language, tasting the food, seeing personal interactions, experiencing the traditions, and so much more when it is in context."
— Elizabeth Laval & Candice Pendergrass, Sikh Youth Public History Project
LA HABRA– With a grant from California Humanities, the La Habra Library proudly introduces the second film in the series: DISMANTLING ARCHETYPES: BREAKING DOWN BARRIERS THROUGH FILM. The La Habra Library presents film professors, historians, directors and artists who discuss films covering race, ethnicity and gender identity to encourage dialogue about these important issues. Glen Mimura, Associate Professor of Film & Media Studies and Asian American Studies at University of California Irvine, will facilitate a discussion of the eccentric immigration satire BORN IN EAST L.A. (Cheech Marin, 1987), leading with brief comments on the film’s historical context and its uncanny resonances with our current cultural-political climate. Light refreshments provided. Sunday, July 30, 2017, 2 pm @ La Habra Library – Community Room La Habra Branch Library 221 E. La Habra Blvd. La Habra, CA 90631 Attendance is Free. Parking is in front of the Library.
